Northville Township is located in LaSalle County, Illinois. As of the 2010 census, its population was 7,410 and it contained 3,143 housing units.[1]

Geography[edit]

According to the 2010 census, the township has a total area of 33.44 square miles (86.6 km2), of which 32.68 square miles (84.6 km2) (or 97.73%) is land and 0.76 square miles (2.0 km2) (or 2.27%) is water.[1]

The Communities of Sandwich, Sheridan, Northville, and Somonauk all contribute to the township's population, and with the township's recent growth, coupled with the difficulty of the county to respond quickly to the remote corner of the county, a County Sheriff Substation was constructed south of the Sandwich neighborhood of Lake Holiday. Sheridan, which mostly sits within Mission Township to the south, actually has a small area on the north side of the Fox River, which sits within the Northville Township limits.
