Originally known as Kalamazoo Village, the area currently known as Saugatuck was first settled in the 1830’s and held on to the original name until the modern day Kalamazoo was officially incorporated and it was decided to change the name to Newark. This name lasted until 1868 when the community was named Saugatuck as suggested by the County Board of Supervisors. It was not until 100 years later in 1968 that Saugatuck was incorporated as a city. Lumber was a thriving industry in the Saugatuck area throughout the 1800’s and played a significant role in helping rebuild Chicago after the infamous 1871 fire.
