History

Businessman John Kinde arrived in Michigan's central Thumb area in the early 1880s and established a general store, lumber yard, grain elevator and post office. Train service began in 1882 with the construction of track by the Port Huron and Northwestern Railroad.

Kinde was renowned as the "bean capital of the world." Michigan Bean soup has been a staple for over a hundred years in the U.S. Senate dining room.[3] However, the Michigan Bean Festival on Labor Day weekend is held in nearby Fairgrove.
