Within the borders of this township is situated the City of Ottawa, the judicial center of the county, and the history of the county seat, as given on other pages of this volume, virtually covers that of the township. Under the provisions of the general law enacted in 1849, this township, with most of the others in the county, was organized in the spring of 1850. For further data concerning the township, reference may be made to the Ottawa City chapters. In 1910 the township, with various wards of the City of Ottawa, had a population of 8,620, and the census of 1920 indicates the population as being 10,300.
