Cassopolis is a small town that serves as the county seat for Cass County in southwest Lower Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the village of Cassopolis had a population of 1,740 residents. Both the village and county are named after Lewis Cass, who was a Senator and Statesman. The town also has the distinction of being home to Edward Lowe, the inventor of kitty litter and to Air Force Captain, Ivan Kincheloe, who once set a world record in high altitude flight at 156,000 feet in an early X-2 rocket jet. Cassopolis is a very picturesque town that is situated between the beautiful Diamond and Stone Lakes. The town has retained many of its historic buildings, including its limestone courthouse, which was built in 1899. Cassopolis makes a safe, peaceful place to base a family vacation and is convenient for visiting all of the many lakes, parks and rivers of Southwest Michigan. The St. Joseph River, Michigans second largest river, is nearby and offers swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, tubing and fishing. Southwest Michigan is also home to many small town fairs and festivals. A few to watch for include the Niles Riverfest and the Four Flags Area Apple Festival, also held in the town of Niles, and the Venetian Festival in nearby St. Joseph.
