Jordan Township is home to approximately 992 very astute people, who have chosen to live in this glorious 34.5 square mile tract of rolling and timbered hills, intersected by the Jordan River.
Though not very large, Jordan Township has seen a 13% population growth since 2000, and those lucky enough to live here know why. It’s a beautiful area, abundant in diverse natural resources and wildlife. Jordan Township is the very doorstep of the Jordan Valley’s 18,000 acres of state land, and home to the Jordan River – Michigan's first waterway to be officially designated as a Wild and Scenic River.
The only “town”, in Jordan Township, is Chestonia, the once-thriving intersection of Old State and M-66, where a busy railway once routinely acquired and dispensed passengers to and from our neck of the woods. Today even the rail road grade is hard to identify in a gentle swell along the grassy and tree-shaded terrain
