From the Chelsea Area Historical Society:

Cyrus Beckwith was the first white settler of the Chelsea region, establishing a farm in Sylvan Township in 1830 in the area where the current fairgrounds are located. He was born in New Hampshire in 1802 and purchased 500 acres from the US Government in 1829. The plat record described Sylvan Township as having "clear plentiful lakes, valleys and holls and having abundant trees, marshy fertile soil and lush blue grass.
