Farmington Hills in Oakland County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Buckhorn Corners was a hamlet in the early days of Farmington Township. A pioneer carpenter, Timothy Tolman, built an early frame house at Buckhorn Corners in 1828.
In the same year, the Tibbits Sawmill went into business half a mile south, along Lee's Creek at the present I-696 and Inkster Roads. The community had a school and cemetery; the Stone or Coleman School, c. 1840, at Middlebelt and I-696, educated children until the mid-twentieth century.
