Located in Allegan County in southwest Michigan, Fennville is a city of nearly 1,500, just minutes from the shores of Lake Michigan.
One of the first western settlers to arrive in the area was a miller by the name of Elam Atwater Fenn, who built a sawmill that became known as “Fenn’s Mill.” Eventually, this term was applied to the entire settlement and the first post office in the community. A clerical error made by a clerk with the Chicago and Michigan Lake Shore railroad led to the city being called “Fennville”, a name which was made official when Fennville was incorporated in early 1889.
Fennville Public Schools provides K-12 education throughout the community. The district is comprised of four schools: Fennville Elementary, Fennville Middle, and Fennville High, as well as the Pearl Alternative/Adult Education School, which serves grades 9-12. Fennville’s location along M-89 makes travel throughout southwest Michigan easily accessible, while Amtrak service to Chicago and Detroit is available in nearby Holland.
In nearby Holland, residents host a yearly “Tulip Time Festival”, which features six million tulips and takes place throughout the city every May. This festival draws over a million tourists every May, and as such, has been ranked as the best small town festival by Readers Digest. Fenneville’s proximity to Hutchins Lake, with numerous access points and water sports, make it a prime location for summer boating and other water sports. Popular restaurants in Fennville include Crane’s Pie Palace and Salt of the Earth, which features ingredients from many of the small family farms that mark the southwestern Michigan countryside.
