Administrative and historical records of Pittsfield Township (Washtenaw County, Michigan). Materials in the Bentley Historical Library's digital repository include proceedings of township board meetings (1834-1965, with some gaps) and records and determinations of township roads (1835-1887).

Pittsfield Township, created in 1834, was one of the earliest townships in Washtenaw County. Originally part of Ann Arbor Township upon its founding in 1827, its independent organization was approved by the Sixth Legislative Council of the Territory of Michigan in 1834, at which time it was renamed the Township of Pitt in 1834 at the suggestion of resident Ezra Carpenter. In 1839 the Michigan State Legislature approved the change of its name to Pittsfield Township and in 1972 residents voted to become a charter township.
