Lanark Township

Lanark Township was first surveyed in 1819, with many of the early settlers arriving from Scotland. The County, the township and the village of Lanark all take their name from Lanark, in Lanarkshire, Scotland, complete with a Clyde River.


Lanark Township is a mixed use region. There is some farmland, some forest, plenty of rocks and minerals, and several lakes and rivers. The Mississippi and the Clyde Rivers were essential to many of the early industrial ventures in the area.
