Kalamazoo River, USA - 5th November 2011

By: Tera

Hello again Mom! Since the weather is so nice we decided to spend a bit of time outside. We went to downtown Plainwell. It is along the Kalamazoo River.

The park had some fall decorations up still.


This is part of an old paper mill.  Plainwell Paper was founded as the Michigan Paper Company of Plainwell in 1886, and went into production the next year. The mill closed in 1998. This area was part of what was known as the Paper City (centered in Kalamazoo). The rivers and railroads made this the ideal place for paper mills. Once it was realized how bad the way they made paper is for the environment the process changed and most mills closed.

The city of Plainwell now owns the mill and it is going to be turned into shops, offices, and apartments.


In this shot you can see the Kalamazoo River. This part of the river has been cleaned and is now good water. The mills did lots of damage.


There is a nice board walk along the river here in Plainwell. Lots of parks and shops around. As you can see in the picture fall is about over and the trees have lost most of their leaves.


We stopped and learned a bit about the towns history.


Here we are by a pretty gazebo. Sometimes you see weddings here taking pictures. The river is right behind us.


Goodbye for now!
