First inhabited by the Miami Indians, the area that has become Watervliet Township enjoys a rich heritage dating back at least to the 1600's. At that time the area was inhabited by the Miami Indians and subsequently by the Potawatomi. It is believed that the first white man to have crossed the territory was French priest Father Marquette in 1675.
In the early 1800's settlers were drawn to the area's fertile land and the opportunities it offered for farming and lumber. Near the end of the century Paw Paw Lake was becoming known for its beauty and potential as a recreational destination.
Within short driving distance of several metropolitan centers offering entertainment, shopping, educational, sporting and cultural opportunities, Watervliet continues to maintain its rural atmosphere and actively seeks to encourage business growth within its borders.
