The coat of arms depicts a blue shield divided into four sections. In the first section is an old American schoolhouse. The second depicts an old general store. The third section shows a farmer using a horse drawn plough, with the sun setting in the background. In the fourth section shows a big red barn with a blue grain silo, with a white fence in front of it. Under the shield is a brown sign which has the founding year on it. The sign acts as the base for a golden laurel wreath which surrounds most of the shield. Under the wreath is a blue banner with the township name inscribed on it.
