Northville Psychiatric Hospital

This State hospital operated from the 1940s to the early 2000s. It was built out of an increasing need for psychiatric institutions, but went from defunding to abandonment of the property.

The Exciting Story of the Novi Special

In 1940, Novi's Lew Welch was commissioned to make a racing engine that would become known as the Novi Special, thrilling fans at the Indianapolis Speedway for a quarter century. When it was retired in 1966, the Novi Special remained the most powerful car on the track, boasting eight hundred forty horsepower, a four-wheel-drive transmission, and a supercharger that spun at forty thousand RPM.
