Allegan by Nancy J Ingalsbee
Book DescriptionDuring the summer of 1834, a group of eastern land investors set its sights on newly platted land at the great bend in the Kalamazoo River, now known as Allegan. This former site of a Pottawatomi village was blessed with both beauty and bounty. Surrounded by woods and with a river racing throughit, a busy community of commerce and recreation was envisioned. It was a perfect combination for enjoyable and productive lives for those who would purchase parcels of land. They could never imagine the many changes their riverside village would see the part it would play in the rebuilding of Chicago after the Great Fire of 1871; Allegan s own devastating fire in 1884, which destroyed the downtown area; the arrival and departure of various businesses; and the phenomenon of countless local families who have had a continuous presence in Allegan for many generations. It is the stories behind these photographs of people, businesses, and events that bring Allegan s past to light in such a marvelous way."
