The John Pahl Historical Village



The Historical Village consists of several historical buildings that have been moved to the fairgrounds. We maintain the buildings and have them open to the public during the Allegan County Fair, and during the Allegan County Fiber Fest. Please call the museum to find out the dates. We have special demonstrations during fair week every year. Volunteers are in all the buildings giving tours during fair hours.

Keep checking this website for new information as we are hoping to have some special tours and events outside of fair week in the coming year.
