Looking back: The Village of Cedar Springs

Several residents, including Craig Cole and Robert Plank, brought in this old postcard of Cedar Springs. It shows what Cedar Springs looked like 140 years ago when it became a village.
According to the Cedar Springs Story, by Sue Harrison and Donna DeJonge, the photo was taken in 1871, and the village was incorporated in March of that year. The photo shows the intersection of Main and Muskegon Streets, looking north. The building on the left is Black’s first store. On the right is O’Dell’s Blacksmith shop, with his wagon shop just north of that. You can also see the United Methodist Church to the north of the wagon shop.
