Settlers began arriving to the area now known as Berrien Springs in 1829. The area had been the home of an Indian chief named Wolf and was originally named Wolf's Prairie. Platted in 1831, the area was named Berrien after John M. Berrien, President Andrew Jackson's attorney general. Later, because of the number of natural springs in the area, the name became Berrien Springs and was incorporated as a village in 1863.
Education plays a vital role in life in Berrien Springs. Home to many fine public and private schools, Berrien Springs is also home to Andrews University.
