Fennville was the first village in Clyde Township (named after Clyde, New York), was settled in 1860 by Henry Blakslee, who joined the Union Army in 1861 and was killed in action.  Elam A. Fenn, in company with Levi Loomis, built a sawmill here in 1862.  It was given a post office as Fenn’s Mill, on February 27, 1868, with Mr. Fenn as its first postmaster.  The village was platted in 1871 by Emmerson & Company, who owned much of the land here, and its post office was renamed Fennville on September 27 of the same year.  Later that year the village burned down and was restored on adjacent land platted by M.C. Wilson.  Fennville was incorporated as a village in 1889, and as a city in 1961.
