About

Berlin Charter Township falls within Monroe County in the state of Michigan. The Township is part of the Monroe Metropolitan Area and the much larger Metro Detroit region. As of the 2020 census, the Township’s population was 9,890.
Formerly part of Ash Township, Berlin Charter Township became an independent Township in 1867. Its borders include Frenchtown Township on the south and Ash Township on the west. The Huron River forms most of the Township’s northern boundary along with Brownstown Township and the cities of Rockwood and Flat Rock.
The community of Newport is in the southwest portion of the Township. Because the unincorporated area has its own post office, most locations in Berlin Charter Township use Newport as a mailing address.
Other Township communities include the village of Estral Beach, South Rockwood, and Carleton.
Jefferson Schools serves the eastern portion of the Township along Lake Erie, and Airport and Flat Rock Community Schools cover the remaining areas.
