Freeport is located right on the center of the northern border of Barry County and is situated on the picturesque Coldwater River which winds its way into the Thornapple River a few miles to the southeast. This town contains a main street section a couple of blocks long with several small stores and businesses. It also is known for a large lumber mill located just to the north on the Coldwater. The area surrounding the town is a great place to go for a color tour or a Sunday drive, with its winding roads, hills and mixture of forested areas and farms.

Freeport was founded in the mid-1800ís by brothers Michael and Samuel Roush who moved here from Freeport, Ohio, naming it after their home town. A train depot and post office were built during the lumber days in 1874, accessing it to the rest of the world via the Lowell & Hastings Railroad. It eventually incorporated into a village in 1907.
