History of Armada Area Schools
The first school in Armada was a one-room schoolhouse at Selleck's Corners. Soon schools sprang up all around the township. By the time the schools were consolidated during the 1940s, there were at least 18 one-room school houses in separately organized districts. Now the Armada Area Schools encompass 76 square miles and parts of seven townships.
Village of Armada
Armada and Armada Township have weathered the years in good stead. Within commuting distance of the greater Detroit Metropolitan area, Armada Township is now one of the fastest growing areas in the entire tri-county area. Today Armada is a bustling agricultural region known for its orchards, its flea market, and its county fair. These have ceased to be purely local events in recent years, and now attract a metropolitan audience. Even with its growth the township and village of Armada has retained its country charm.
Armada Township is a rural, agricultural community located on Macomb County's northern border with St. Clair County. It sits between Bruce Township and Richmond Township with 32 Mile Road as its southern border. Originally organized in 1832, the Township developed as an agricultural area. Today, it embodies a delightful rural character with a mixture of small farms and residential areas, including the Village of Armada. The area is noted for its prominent apple orchards nestled among small hills and the winding turns of Coon Creek, which flows through the area.
