The Village of Vicksburg has about 3,000 residents and although small by many standards, it is a vital, growing community. Quality schools, abundant natural resources, business opportunities, and friendly small town atmosphere have enticed many to settle here and call it home.
John Vickers, the town's namesake, settled in the area in 1831. It was incorporated as a village of the state in 1871. A Michigan Registered Historic Site plaque reads:
