Paw Paw is the county seat of Van Buren County , located in southwest Michigan. Historically, it was named after the river which flows through it, where Potawatomi Indians referred to it in the early 1800ís as "the place where the Paw Paw fruit grows." When European settlers moved there, they began growing other kinds of fruit due to the favorable soil there. This included grapes. Paw Paw became organized in 1859 and developed into the center of what is known today as "Wine Country." Today, the town is known for its wineries, where many come to visit and taste the regionís best fruit of the vine.
