As an unincorporated community, there are no defined boundaries for Chesterfield, but it is generally considered to be the area along M-3 (Gratiot Avenue), from 24 Mile Road south to just south of 23 Mile Road, and includes Chesterfield Road, which intersects with 24 Mile Road and 23 Mile Road.

Chesterfield was settled by European-Americans around 1830 but saw no appreciable business development until the Grand Trunk Railroad came through in 1865. Soon, the new town had a blacksmith shop, cider mill, a combination grocery and general store, a cattle dealership, and a school. A post office was established on March 10, 1875, with James C. Patton as postmaster. The post office operated at that location until July 15, 1907. The Chesterfield post office is now located just south of 23 Mile Road and east of Gratiot Avenue, serving the larger Chesterfield Township area.

Chesterfield was the original settlement within the township, although it was soon surpassed by other communities in the township, such as New Baltimore and Milton.
