Novi was initially an agriculture based community. Many products were raised in the community including apples, wheat, dairy, sheep and many other commodities. Since the community had access to the railroad, commodities could be easily transported to Detroit, Michigan and elsewhere in the country. The Wool House was where local farmers brought their fleeces to sell. Sheep and wool production has long been one of the main outputs of the community. In 1910, the Novi Census indicated that our community consisted of 1226 people and 9094 sheep.
