The township was organized on October 16th 1861. A brief early history of the township was found in a news paper article from May 12th 1955 contributed by Gerry Christiansen. The article explains as Greenville Michigan was starting to grow in the mid 1840s logging pushed development north. As cabins, roads, a saw mill and a dam on the Flat River moved north the village of Langston began to take shape. Langston was named for Daniel Lang, who operated the saw-mill for Edwin Breese. He subsequently built a small hotel, onto which he built many additions as his business grew. It finally became the largest hotel between Greenville and Big Rapids. Langston became a busy lumber center with thriving stores and the hotel. The Briggs House was also built by Benjamin Briggs, who came to the township in 1866. His hotel later became known as the Clifford House and then the Murphy House a private residence. The township was organized October 16th , 1861 and so named because of its leading variety of timber. In the 1864 census there were 38 inhabitants.
