Local History and Genealogy
News, comments, resources, and more.
How long have you lived in Kalamazoo and in your neighborhood? Who owned your home prior to your purchase? Was the neighborhood a former cornfield, an apple orchard, or an Indian encampment? The Local History Room has answers to all these questions and more. For a long time, files have been kept and culled from newspapers and other sources about our city. There have been books written about the neighborhoods and individual houses. The Local History web site has a listing of homes and their history. Neighborhood associations and local historians have added to the wealth of knowledge. Curious? This just might be the place for you.
