Information About Park/Area:

Bangor Depot -- Thanks to a great amount of private investment from Ken Ratzlaff and his Beacon Specialized Living Services corporation, the Bangor Downtown Development Authority, and the State of Michigan CDBG and MDOT grants, the Bangor station has new life. This after a period of neglect that almost saw the building razed by its owner, CSX Transportation. Thanks to a seed grant, the City, State grants and private investment the building is no longer an eyesore but rather has become a centerpiece of the City’s revitalization.

History -- The City of Bangor was first a part of Bangor Township. Then it became the Village of Bangor and then later the City of Bangor. Mr. Charles U. Cross, one of the earliest settlers, came to Bangor from Madison County, New York in 1835. Within a year, he built a sawmill on the Black River. His first home was built on the site that is now West Michigan Savings Bank. Others joined him as the lands offered good farming and the river made lumbering easy. In 1853, the Van Buren County Board of Supervisors voted to organize the township and give it the name of Marion. The name was so unpopular, it was changed to Bangor only three days later. There are a few theories about why this change was made, but the most likely is that it was suggested by a member of the board who was originally from Bangor, Maine. Bangor became a village on March 21, 1877 and remained a village for 91 years until February 5, 1968, when it became a City.
