1. Four Towns Methodist Church Marker
Inscription. Four Towns received its name because it is near the point where the townships of West Bloomfield, Commerce, Waterford, and White Lake meet. In 1866 a frame schoolhouse was built here, on land donated by Nathan R. Colvin. From that year until 1930 the building served both as a school and church. Since then the building has been used primarily for church activities.
