... A place where one lives; a valued place considered to be a refuge or place of origin; The place, as a country or town, where one was born or resided for a long period...” These are just a few of Webster’s definitions of the word “home"

Bates Township is “home” for many of our residents who have descended from the township’s earliest Settlers. Our “roots” run deep. For some this is the community that you have chosen for a variety of reasons to call “home.”

Our township is rich in history and our citizens are strong in spirit! However it is that you have made your way here at this moment in time…we would like to say - Welcome Home!
