Portage is located in the state of Michigan and a city in Kalamazoo County. The area where the present-day Portage stands were inhabited for the longest time by the Potawatomi Indians. The Native Americans grew corn, hunted, fished, and created their dwelling in a conical shape wigwams and greeted the early settlers who came to the area in peace. However, it was found that there was an even more ancient race that inhabited the area, although there is only a little evidence that will save the mysterious mounds and earthworks that resemble a garden bed. Potage’s lush land was primarily ignored by the early western settlers who migrated in the area as they mistook it on a belief that it was an inhabitable swamp or is unfit for cultivation.
