Established in 1855, Claybanks Township was one of the three original townships of Oceana County. Over the next 11 years, portions of the township were removed to become new townships, until the current township borders were solidified in 1866.
Although small family farms made up the majority of industry in the township during its first century in existence, Claybanks Township has more recently evolved into a rural bedroom community of small residential areas nestled among farmland and natural habitats. The function of the Claybanks Township Board is to ensure that development in the township does not exceed the capability of the land and resources to support it.
