Portage is a large suburban city in Kalamazoo County, just south of the City of Kalamazoo. It has a strong, diverse economy, including everything from pharmaceuticals to auto products. It is also considered the main shopping region in the Kalamazoo area, with several malls, plazas and many fine restaurants.
Portage was first settled in 1830 when a Mr. Herring built the first log cabin here. In 1836, it was originally registered as "Sweetland" when John E. Howard started the Post Office. In 1838, Moses Austin helped organize the Township, and the town was renamed after Portage Creek, its main stream.
