Legend of The Forks of the Kalamazoo River - Albion, Michigan

The history of the Kalamazoo River watershed is very rich and can be traced back as far as the Paleo-Indians almost 10,000 years ago. Indian communities were drawn to the Kalamazoo River area because of its valuable n

atural resources. The friendly Potawatomi Indians settled near the forks of the Kalamazoo River. They fished and hunted the wild life, which was plentiful. European settlers used the area as early as 1680 for trapping and fur trade.

English-speaking settlers arrived to stay at this spot in 1833, and the area became known as “The Forks,” because it is situated at the confluence of the north and south branches of the Kalamazoo River.

The forks of the Kalamazoo River provided power for mills, and Albion quickly became a mill town as well as an agricultural market. A railroad line arrived in 1852, fostering the development of other industries.
