Station: Fenville, MI
Fennville was settled in 1860 and was the location of an early sawmill. The village was platted in 1871 by the Emerson & Company which owned much of the land in the area. Later that year, the town burned down and was rebuilt. [MPN] Fennville was a station on the Chicago & West Michigan (later PM/C&O) about 12 miles south of Holland.
