Long Description:
The Downtown Three Rivers Commercial Historic District has one of the best-preserved Victorian streetscapes in southwestern Michigan. Three Rivers, settled in the 1830s, grew with the development of local water power and a railroad in the 1850s. St Joseph Street (North Main) and Penn Street (Portage) formed the business center. The district's oldest structures, built on North Main in the early 1850s, are the Kelsey building (39-43) and the Crossett-Spencer-Millard building (40-42). The district was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

Visit Instructions:
Take a photo of your GPS at the marker. We'd prefer a photo of you with your GPS, but we realize that sometimes that's just not possible or preferable. Also include a bit about your visit to the marker.

NEW: Instructions for logging Missing Marker Visits.

If the Marker is missing, but still listed here, you must provide a photo of you at the actual item historically honored. (This should be the waymark's "default" image). Indicate in your log that you took your photo at the Historical Location instead of the marker, because the marker was missing. Please also still include a bit about your visit to the site.
