Rochester Hills Factoids:

  • Avon Township was organized in 1835… eventually, Avon Township would become Rochester and Rochester Hills.

  • Rochester Hills didn’t become a city until 1984 (up until then it was Avon Charter Township).  Residents voted for one of two names: Avon Hills and Rochester Hills.  Rochester Hills won by a landslide because it of their historical ties to Rochester and the hills that abound in the area.

  • Meadow Brook Amphitheater is located in Rochester Hills on the campus of Oakland University.  It was originally called Meadow Brook Music Festival. The DSO (Detroit Symphony Orchestra) called Meadow Brook their summer home for the first four seasons it was open. Robert Plant played Meadow Brook in 2015.
