Village of Pewamo

Welcome to the Village of Pewamo

Originally settled in 1834, the Village of Pewamo was incorporated in 1859, and proudly celebrated its Sesquicentennial in 2009. Pewamo prides itself as a family friendly, zoned community where you can enjoy small town living, but still have easy access to the amenities offered by cities such as Lansing and Grand Rapids.

Recreation opportunities abound in Pewamo. We have a nine acre Village park with ball fields, tennis courts, pavilions and lots of playground equipment! We are very excited to have the Fred Meijer CIS Trail passing through Pewamo. We invite you to start your trail journey here or to stop and visit as you enjoy the trail. We have a beautiful trailhead, which is fashioned after the original depot. There are restrooms, picnic tables and a drinking fountain, which we hope will allow you to take a moment to rest and refresh.

Pewamo Mural

The Village of Pewamo was proud to unveil a new addition to Sesquicentennial Park at Block Party 2014. Due to generous donations received, the Village was able to commission Dan Arens of Westphalia to create a historic mural of the Pewamo Depot. Included in the mural is a tribute to our namesake, Chief Pewamo.
