The city of Kalamazoo is in the southwest region of Michigan along the bank of a major bend in the Kalamazoo River and the broad Kalamazoo Valley.

There is still evidence of the Hopewell civilization in the downtown area of Bronson Park. Kalamazoo is also home to the start of the Gibson Guitar Corporation, which produces some of the world’s finest quality guitars to this day.
