Bridgman-Lake Township Historical Society


Our Beginnings........
The Bridgman-Lake Township Historical Society was formed in 2006 to compile and preserve a complete and accurate history of this area. The book Bridgman-Lake Township: The First One Hundred Years 1856-1956 was released in August of 2008 and continues to be a "best seller" for the Society. To order the book click here. Books are also available at our office in the Library, Liskey Insurance and the Bridgman Garden & Feed. Both businesses are on Lake Street.


Our Mission........
The Society will "perpetually seek, collect and preserve items of historical value to the community in the form of photographs, writings, documents and artifacts; to make that material available for periodic displays at the Bridgman Public Library and other public venues. The Society will strive to instill in the community awareness and appreciation for local history; and to that end will encourage the public and parochial schools of Bridgman to include Bridgman and Lake Township history as a permanent part of the official curriculum."
