Vicksburg, Mich. — And here’s a gem hidden away in the village of Vicksburg — located about 13 miles south of Kalamazoo in Kalamazoo County.
The Vicksburg Historical Village is near downtown Vicksburg and is open to the public. The Village includes: the Depot Museum, the former 1904 Union Station featuring more than 10,000 historical and genealogical items; Strong School, a one-room school house moved from its original location; the Commercial Print Shop, a working newspaper office and print shop, and the Oswalt Farm House, the anchor of a 1900s farmstead, which includes a windmill, granary, dog coop, woodshed, and outhouse.
The Historical Society Volunteers are available to answer questions about Vicksburg area history and assist with genealogy/family history questions.
The museum is open Saturdays from 10 to 3.
