Frankfort Township was originally a part of the Hickory Creek Precinct. In 1850, Frankfort Township was named by Frederick Cappel after his native city, Frankfurt-Am-Main, Germany. In 1855, the Joliet Northern Indiana Railroad built a line through the area linking Joliet with Lake Station, Indiana. The J & NI Railroad was leased to the Michigan Central Railroad and service was implemented in July 1855.
