Douglas, Michigan is a beautiful city located along the shores of Lake Michigan just south of Saugatuck. Douglas is just less than 2 square miles in size and has a population of approximately 1,200 residents. Part of Allegan County, Douglas is a friendly place to visit, do business and call home, and offers gorgeous views of the lake to the west and the Kalamazoo River to the northeast.
Modern day Douglas started out as two different communities: Dudleyville and Dutcher. They were separated by Center Street and have roots dating back to the 1850’s with Dudleyville being known as a lumber mill town. In 1870, the town of Douglas officially became incorporated. There are two theories as to how the name Douglas came about. The first is that the city was named after Stephen A. Douglas, a renowned politician from Illinois who lost the presidential election to Abraham Lincoln. The second theory is that one of the landowners was originally from the capital of the Isle of Man which was Douglas.
Being a lumber mill town, Douglas helped provide the lumber that rebuilt Chicago after the famous 1871 fire. Once the lumber was cleared, fruit, especially peaches, became the predominant export from Douglas. Soon after, the tourism industry started booming and Douglas, along with many of the surrounding areas situated on Lake Michigan, became the resort destination for folks from all over.
