Homer, Michigan

Homer is a small, rural community located in southeastern Calhoun County at the junction of M-60 and M-99. It is situated on the Kalamazoo River, which includes a dam and mill pond just to the east of town. The picturesque downtown area contains several turn-of-the-century buildings and an old fieldstone library. A veterans’ memorial is located in the circle just west of the main street area.

Homer was first settled by Milton Barney in 1832, who built a sawmill and a store, calling it Barneyville. In 1834 when a post office was registered, it was renamed Homer after the city in Courtland County, New York, at the request of many of the residents who had moved from there. It was incorporated as a village in 1871.
