Revitalized "Trailhead Apartments"

 to Grace Village of Pewamo

Bob Shepard has an eye for Real Estate and investment. When he saw the apartment building he lived in with his wife after they first got married go up for sale, he knew it would liven up the town that he grew up in and contribute to the transformation of the tight-knit community he loves.

“The Trailhead Apartments” has been under complete renovation since August of 2015. There will be two 1-bedroom units and three 2-bedroom units for rent. The apartments will be ready for occupancy mid-July 2016.

Currently, all of the units are rented, aside from one 2-bedroom unit still available. If anyone is interested in renting the available unit, please contact Lester Shepard, the property manager, at 616-902-0134.

Water Tower Work Is Complete!!

The rehabilitation of the Pewamo Water Tower is complete and we

celebrate the new look!

This is another part of our USDA Rural Development project 

to improve the Village water system.  

Proper maintenance of the tower will allow the tower to serve 

the village and its residents well into the future!

The final phase is currently underway, which is the updating of the tower and 

pump controls.


Village of Pewamo joins the Little Free Library Program!

Our Little Free Library can be found at the Pewamo Trailhead.

Thanks to Neal & Amber Spitzley for introducing us to the Little Free Library Program.

Thank you to Tony Thelen for building our Little Free Library.

This program is being run in conjunction with the Lyons Township District Library, and we thank them for their support!



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.  We are very grateful to Dan and to the numerous benefactors who made this possible. 

Here's a little secret....Dan hides a mouse in the murals he creates!  Have you found the one hidden in the Pewamo mural?

And if you travel east to Fowler you can see another mural created by Dan, which was unveiled in the fall of 2015.  Located on the north side of the Becker Furniture building, it's a beautiful display that celebrates Fowler's history and the Fred Meijer CIS Trail.  The mural is visible from the trail, and also has a hidden mouse.  Good luck finding it!

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 is also happy to have Huckleberry Creek Golf Course, which is only a short distance north of town and offers 18 holes of scenic golf!   As a part of the P-W School District, Pewamo is proud of the educational opportunities they are able to offer.  The Village is home to two elementary schools, one public and one private Catholic school.  St. Joseph Catholic School is a 1st through 8th grade facility, which is fully accredited. Recently P-W Schools celebrated national recognition when U.S. News & World Report announced top high schools in the nation.  

P-W High School was selected as a "Silver Medalist" (in the top 505).  To put this in perspective, P-W was in the top 3% of high schools in the nation, and since then they have received more esteemed accolades and recognition in the field of education.

Pewamo Poem Minimize

I like to live in a little town, where
the trees meet across the street.
Where you wave your hand and say
"Hello" to everyone you meet.
I like to stand for a moment
outside the grocery store.
And listen to the friendly gossip
of the folks that live next door.
For life is interwoven
with the friends we learn to know.
And we hear their joys and sorrows 
as we daily come and go.
I like to live in a little town.
I care no more to roam.
For every house in Pewamo
is more than a house...its home.
