History

Though the Grand River valley has been occupied for thousands of years, it was the territory of the Ottawa tribe in the 1800s. The first European settlement there was a trading post founded by a French fur trading family in 1806. By 1821, following the French and Indian War, Ottawa ceded the land to the US via the Treaty of Chicago. The town that would grow into Grand Rapids was founded by 1826, and Kent County was established by 1833. By the 1900s, it was already becoming “Furniture City.”

Location

Before buying a mobile home in Grand Rapids, consider its location and what that means for the climate. Grand Rapids was founded at a bend in the Grand River, where rapids made further travel by ship impossible. The river valley itself is wide and flat at an altitude of around 600 feet above sea level. It is not far from Lake Michigan, as well. This produces warm summers, cold winters with plenty of snow, and very mild springs and autumns. Before you buy land in Michigan, though, think about what kind of neighborhood you would most enjoy living in. Each of the following neighborhoods offers something special.
