History

First known as Deerfield, became Covert Michigan in 1877. A small community of 3100 in population. A town full of Black History dated back to the Civil War. The first settler from Maine came to Michigan and bought the first parcel of land in 1845. Back than his nearest neighbor lived in Bangor. Covert was rich with agriculture land. Rich with woods and sandy soil. The first Mills were built in 1860′s. The Conner’s, Pompey’s and the Dawson’s were some of first black families to settle in Covert. Some of their descendants still live in Covert to this day, so I’m told. The small town of Covert also runs along Lake Michigan. Home to the Palisades Nuclear Plant, built in the 60′s. Today Covert has a wide range of Blueberry Growers. The sandy soil has been good for the berry’s. Newer Sub divisions building on the countryside. Land can be purchased in Covert for $2000-3000 a acre in some areas. Farms are selling for $5000-7000 a acre!!
