Love and Live in Rockford Michigan
Grand Rapids is a bustling metropolis that offers visitors an overwhelming amount of opportunities. However if you're looking for something different, then look no further than the quaint little town called Rockford which sits just 15 minutes north on I-96! The downtown area has all your typical small-town charm with its historic buildings and scenic riverbanks lined by lush trees while nearby lakes provide abundant recreation time in nature's beauty; there really isn't anything not to love about this place.
The town of Rockford, Michigan was first settled by Marlin Hunter in 1842. The community of Laphamville was founded in 1845 by a group who wanted to farm the land they had purchased. The first dwelling built at this settlement became home for yet another family around 1865, and it wasn't until much later on that we saw any other development happen here. In 1866 it was incorporated as the Village of Rockford. Rockford, MI was orriginally a lumber town but soon turned into a shoe manufacturing community by 1905. In 1935 it was incorporated as a city.
The downtown shopping district of Rockford is a wonderful step back in time. And while it does not run seven city blocks, you will be greeted with smiles from merchants as they welcome their families into these family-owned businesses that have been around for decades!
