|Watervliet lies on the I-94 Chicago-Detroit corridor in northern Berrien County, Michigan. This small town, with it's population of near 2,000, is a thriving community with a commitment to its history, economic development and an enriched lifestyle.
Watervliet was founded in 1833 when the Sumner-Wheeler saw mill was erected on the current site of the Watervliet Paper Company. One of the first merchants to the area was Isaac
Moffatt, who opened a store in 1836. The town was named for the Dutch term meaning "flowing water".
Recreation is important to
Watervliet. Paw Paw Lake is a favorite among boaters and fishermen and Lake Michigan is only a short distance away. Golfers will enjoy the Paw Paw Lake Golf Course and there is cross country skiing at Brookside Park, just south of
Watervliet. If you enjoy picnicking, Hays Park along the Paw Paw River or Flaherty Park, located on Mill Creek are two great sites. The city is also home to the popular Ice Sculpting Contest in February and in July be sure to attend the parade, fireworks and the Buck Skinners Encampment.
