Snowmobile Trail Report
Constantine is located in the township of the same name in the southwest corner of Saint Joseph County. This very picturesque town on the St. Joseph River contains many Victorian, turn-of-the-century style buildings blended in an old style design with a park on the river across from a dam. This town was named after Constantine the Great in 1835 by businessman and lawyer, Niles F. Smith. It was settled in the late 1820�s and incorporated in 1837. The first postmaster who started here in 1835 was John S. Barry, who later became governor of Michigan serving 3 terms. Today, Constantine retains its small town atmosphere, with several dozen interesting shops, businesses and restaurants. Travelers also continue to appreciate its well-preserved Victorian architecture and design. And you can also generally find people fishing behind the dam just north of town - local kids� rumor has it that it�s great for bass!|
