Township is about 26 square miles in size. Our boundaries are from
Hotchkiss Road to Freeland Road and Eight Mile Road to Evergreen Drive.
Frankenlust was originally established as a colony of German immigrants in
1848. The current township administration building’s ground breaking took
place in 1976 and the dedication of the new building was October 23, 1977. The
former building sits behind our current building near the creek.
Frankenlust is a friendly community
with many diverse people. Much of Frankenlust Township is farm land with
room for business as well as rural growth. We have a Nature Park on the
southeast corner of Three Mile Road and Hotchkiss Road. There are 2 ponds
with fish and a nice array of wild life which include deer, fox, rabbit, birds,
raccoon, opossum, and muskrats. Please let us know if you spot anything
new walking about in the park.
There is also a Township Park near
the administrative building. There are swings, merry-go-round, a teeter
totter, springy animals, a slide, barbecue grills, picnic tables, a pavilion
and a portable john during the warm months. Squaconning Creek runs along
the north side of our Township Park and if you’re lucky you’ll see fish
