Forks of the River

Legend of The Forks of the Kalamazoo River

The history of the 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 natural resources. Hunting and fishing camps were common in the watershed. European settlers used the area as early as 1680 for trapping and fur trade. The friendly Potawatomi Indians settled near the forks of the Kalamazoo River.  They fished and hunted the wild life which was plentiful. 

Albion’s first European pioneers, the Tenney Peabody family, settled at the Forks of the Kalamazoo in 1833, building their cabin with a thatched roof of grass from the nearby river.

In the years to follow, the river continued to reflect Albion’s growth and colorful history.
