Bloomfield Hills is a city in Oakland County in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is a northern suburb of Metro Detroit and is approximately 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Downtown Detroit. Except for a small southern border with the city of Birmingham, the city is almost completely surrounded by Bloomfield Township, but the city and township are administered autonomously.
On June 28, 1820, Oakland County was divided into two townships: Pontiac Township and Bloomfield Township, the latter covering the southern part of the county that would include West Bloomfield Township, Royal Oak and Southfield. What is now Bloomfield Hills was a farming area until the turn of the 20th century when wealthy Detroit residents bought up the land. The settlement became a village in 1927, and in 1932 residents voted to become a city to avoid being incorporated into growing Birmingham.
Bloomfield Hills is a community of residents that value strongly the traditions of quiet, rural residential properties. The community is the home to the internationally renowned Cranbrook Institute of Science and Art, the exclusive Bloomfield Hills Country Club, and the Bloomfield Open Hunt Club. This is a community that wishes little change other than continually reliable and improving public services. Change occurs only with deliberate, active participation by residents.
