The Township of Ann Arbour  was organized in 1827 by the Legislative Council of the Michigan Territory and the Village of Ann Arbour–which later became the City of Ann Arbor–was organized in 1833. As villages remained part of the township, the Village of Ann Arbour did not become completely detached from the township until it reorganized as the city of Ann Arbor.
