About

The Macatawa Historical Society (MHS) was founded in 2016 by three longtime residents of Macatawa. The mission of the Macatawa Historical Society (MHS) is to preserve and promote the history and traditions of Macatawa, Michigan to inspire, enrich the current and future generations.

Among the initial goals is to begin a video archive of the oral history of longtime residents with intimate knowledge of Macatawa Park. To date over 30 interviews have been completed and stored on this website. The MHS launched its website and social media properties in July 2017 and ​has begun collecting historic documents, photographs, and relics from its residents to share with the local community and western Michigan.
