The Village of Chatham History

Welcome to the Chatham, Michigan and Rock River Township History Page.  On this page, we go back many years, to the creation of the township and the village, and explore particularly interesting aspects of the area.  So many things are different now, compared to then, that it's really hard to compare the eras.  All we can do is tell the stories of the past, and understand what it was like to live in that time.  It was an era when the main roads we use now were dirt, and the major source of transportation was by horse carriage or train.  Of course, nobody can go back in time and see what it was like, but we can read about it.  So, enjoy the pictures and information we have about the starting of Chatham and Rock River Township!
This web page has been broken down into accessible, mini-pages based on specific historical subjects.  All of these pages deal with Chatham and early Rock River Township history.  Just click upon one of the topics below to see what it's all about.  Then click the back button on your browser to get back to this page.

Information acquired in the creation of this page came from the book:  "Alger County : A Centennial History 1885 - 1985". A special thanks to the publishers and creators of this book!
