•Munith is a small unincorporated community in Henrietta Township southwest of Stockbridge.

 

•The town was founded when the Grand Trunk Western Railroad put in a depot stop in the early 1800’s.

 

•Jean Baptiste Berard claimed to have settled in the Munith area in 1816 and had established a trading post in 1831.

 

•Nearby Batteese Lake was named after him. In 1839, a local settler, Henry Hurd, organized the first post office in the area and named the township Henrietta, after his hometown of Henrietta, New York.
