History

Lewis Center History

This Township was originally known as Township 3, Range 18 of the United States Military Lands. On September 18, 1816, county commissioners granted a petition to set off the original survey as a separate township. The Township was to be called the classic name of Virgil, but residents submitted a petition and the named was changed to Orange.

Soon after the War 1812, Lee Hurlburt settled on the west bank of Alum Creek. Hurlburt had gone to the War as a substitute for his father, who had come to the township with him, bringing his family of twenty-three children. The first settler on Alum Creek was probably Samuel Ferson who came from Pennsylvania and settled here about 1819. The beautiful area by the Alum Creek Reservoir is interesting because it was settled early, thus its homes and people have had exceptionally long lines and extended families.

In 1824, David Patterson, Cyrus Chambers, Thomas McCloud and Nelson Skeels settled on the west bank of the creek. Samuel Patterson purchased a farm for $2.06 per acre on the east side of the creek and built there. Other family members also built on the land. Their homes were originally built of hand-made brick they fashioned themselves. Sam’s house was used in the chain of “underground railway stations” during the Civil War. Many notable families later chose to live here.
