Pomona Point Neighbors at Paw Paw Lake

  • North Berrien Historical Museum 300 Coloma Ave Coloma, MI 49038 United States (map)

Join us as we dive into the waters of Paw Paw Lake’s rich history as a resort destination. Dr. Stephen Myers, a retired Professor of Medicine, moved to Pomona Point in 2008. His recent book, Pomona Point Neighbors at Paw Paw Lake, traces the growth of summer cottages and—later on—vacation homes along the shores and hills of the Point in the Fairview subdivision of Watervliet Township.

For his presentation, Dr. Myers will detail some of this history and how he became interested in the topic. He will also share information from his published biography of artist Charles Hetherington, a Chicago man who built one of the oldest surviving cottages in Fairview and is remembered as an American Expressionist painter.
