1. Schellenberger Tavern Marker
Inscription.  German immigrant Jacob Schellenberger built this structure as both a home and tavern. A stone cutter by trade, Schellenberger obtained sandstone from along the nearby Kalamazoo River for the building which he completed around 1840. Because of its proximity to the river, Indians reportedly stopped here enroute to Detroit trading posts. Now a private residence, the structure features the low-pitched roof and wide entablature characteristic of Greek Revival architecture.
 
Erected 1977 by Michigan History Division, Department of State. (Marker Number L0473.)
