It's fascinating to dip into history and see how the world has changed over the years, especially locally.

In 1870, Battle Creek had a population of just over 5,800 residents according to census records. At this point, the city was a few years away from the cereal production it would become famous for. But the Battle Creek Sanitarium had already began operating just a few years prior, setting the table for the future of the city. By the early 20th century, the population of the city had nearly tripled and Battle Creek was establishing itself as one of Michigan's bigger metropolitan areas.

You can bring some of this Battle Creek history right into your home, or consider it as a gift to a family member or friend who is a history buff, with a vintage map showing the young Michigan city from an aerial view in 1870.
