Verified Review
It is very important to us that we let you know how satisfied we were with our move from Monroe, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  Your employee, Jessie, handled the moving from pick-up to delivery flawlessly!  He was a gentleman the entire time.  From the loading thru the unloading, he could not have been more professional.  He worked without breaks and did a couple of extra things for us that was above and beyond our expectations!  We would recommend Rose Moving and Storage to anyone moving any distance from locally to nationally!  Thanks for everything!

Overview

Norton Shores is located on the shores of Lake Michigan in Muskegon (Muskegon, Michigan Moving Reviews). The community of 22,527 residents encompasses over 24 square miles (62 km2) including Mona Lake and Black Lake as well as Hoffmaster State Park.

Norton Shores (Get Relocation Cost for Norton Shores, MI) might best be described as a suburban environment with a balance of industrial and commercial development. It has also led the county in residential construction permits for the past five years. The city offers educational opportunities from the Mona Shores Public Schools to Muskegon Community College, Baker College and Grand Valley State University.

History

The Chippewa, Potawatomi and Ottawa Indians for hundreds of years occupied the wilds of Western Michigan. When white immigrants arrived they found openings in the forest made by the Native Americans, which were used to raise food.

Norton Township was originally organized in 1845 by settlers of the village of Mill Point (now Spring Lake (Spring Lake, Michigan Movers)). The township was named in honor of Col. Amos Norton, a Canadian patriot who was implicated in the rebellion of 1837.

Norton Township was part of Ottawa County and also included the Townships of Fruitport and Sullivan. In 1855 Spring Lake (Spring Lake, MI Moving Companies) was detached from Norton and organized as a township in Ottawa County. Also in 1855 the village of Black Lake was settled with a railroad station and a sawmill in Norton Township. Norton Township was separated from Ottawa County in 1859 and became a part of Muskegon County. The population of Norton Township in 1860 was 197 and in 1864 was 229.

In 1847 the first sawmill in Norton Township was built. It was known as Robinson's Mill and was located at the head of Black Lake (now known as Mona Lake).

In 1850, Ira Porter arrived at Mona Lake. He operated Porter Sawmill and a fruit farm. One of the largest fruit farms in Norton Township was operated by G. N. Cobb who also operated a box factory for fifteen years beginning in 1869. With the closing of the sawmills and the box factory, residents turned to raising fruit which became a very profitable industry. Boats would enter Lake Harbor and make a trip around the lake picking up crates of berries at the docks of the growers. They would then return to Lake Michigan with their cargo and transfer it to large steamers bound for Chicago.

In 1894 a summer resort community called Hackley Park was established on Lake Michigan and Mona Lake. It was named for Charles Hackley. The name was shortened to Hackley when it got a post office in 1895, although the post office closed in 1897.

Thanks to the Norton Township Volunteer Fire Department and the cooperation of the Norton Township Board, action was taken to incorporate Norton Township into a Home Rule City. An election to determine if Norton Township should be incorporated into a Home Rule City passed by a two to one margin and nine charter commissioners were elected to draw up the first City Charter which was adopted on April 16, 1968.
