Originally established as a general law township in 1842, we became a Charter Township in 1989 to better serve the residents in our rapidly growing community. Located in the Northeast quadrant of Macomb County, Michigan, approximately 30 miles north of Downtown Detroit. Chesterfield’s land mass consist of a little more then 26 square miles and our entire eastern boundary is along Anchor Bay in northern Lake St. Clair.
Three public school districts serve the educational needs of our school age population. Anchor Bay Schools, L’Anse Creuse Schools, and New Haven Schools all provide a wide range of programs to assure an outstanding educational experience.
