The loggers first settled in Roscommon County in the mid-nineteenth century.  The residents met at the Gerrish Logging Camp in April, 1890, to elect officers for their newly organized Township.  James Watson was chosen as the first supervisor.  Originally the Township embraced present-day Gerrish, Lyon and Markey Townships.  In 1920, the present boundaries were established.  It was named after Sylvester Higgins, Michigan's first chief of the topographical department of the Michigan Geological Survey.
