Garfield Township

Garfield Township is comprised of four communities, Engadine, Gilchrist, Millecoquins and Naubinway.  The primary route to these destinations is travel on US 2.  Travel through these little towns will bring guests to gas stations, grocery stores and attractions.  Located in Naubinway is a private airport called The Hiawatha Club Airport.

Interesting History and Facts about Garfield Township

The lumber settlement of Engadine was originally called “Kennedy Siding” until Swiss railroad agent Sam Peterson decided to name it after a valley in his homeland. Gilchrist, name for landowner John Gilchrist, was originally a lumber settlement with a station on the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railway.  Millecoquins is located at the southern end of Millecoquins Lake, which divides the upper and lower portions of the Millecoquins River.  The name Millecoquins is a French word derived from the Indian terms Manana koking or Minakoking, meaning "a place where the hardwood is plentiful". That would explain all the lumber settlements in the area!  Naubinway, another town springing up from the lumber industry, finds the origin for its name in the Indian term meaning “place of echoes.”
