Frankfort Real Estate


    Frankfort was founded in 1855 and incorporated in 1879. The land was inhabited by Native Americans  from at least 1700 to 1840.  There were Pottawatomie Indians, loosely associated with Chippewa and Ottawa tribes.  Then came the French fur traders and land speculators. As many as 50% of the Indians were mixed blood, as late as 1820.  The first real owners of the land in Frankfort Township, in a sense that they came to work and live on the land, were those people who were the first true pioneers and they sank their roots deep in the soil. Their names were:  James Boorman, arthur Bronson, John Fennertz, Horatio J. Loomis, Sylvester Bowen and Harvey Higgins. They made Frankfort what it is today.
