Contact: Julie Grynwich, 269-469-2933
Location: Pokagon Room
It is well known that the county seat election in 1894 was vicious, one of the worst the county ever experienced. But the battle that changed Berrien County actually began 14 years earlier when residents went to the polls for the first time ever to determine if Berrien Springs would remain the county seat. The battle started in the twilight month of 1879 and would take its final stand in the spring of 1894. Join the Berrien County Historical Associate as it explores the story of the county seat removal nd the surprising tales unearthed along the way.
