Location of Paw Paw, Michigan

Alternate use: There is also the unincorporated community of Paw Paw Lake in Berrien County about 30 miles west of the village of Paw Paw.

Paw Paw is a village located in Van Buren County, Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the village had a total population of 3,363. It is the county seat of Van Buren County. The village is located in the northeast portion of Paw Paw Township at the confluence of the east and south branches of the Paw Paw River.

Paw Paw was incorporated in 1837 and is located in the southwestern portion of Michigan, on Interstate 94 approximately 20 miles west of Kalamazoo.

Paw Paw is a quaint rural location whose primary agricultural product is grapes, which are used both in the local wine industry and for juice and jellies. The St. Julian's and Warner's Wineries started in Paw Paw. Paw Paw has an annual Wine and Harvest Festival, which traditionally occurs the weekend following Labor Day. The Festival features a beer tent, bandstand, live music, a popular grape stomping competition among barefoot locals, carnival foods, and fireworks over scenic Maple Lake. Fine dining establishments in the Theater District cater to attendees of the Festival.

Paw Paw is named for the pawpaw trees which once grew along the Paw Paw River. However, the pawpaw trees are less common at present due to the clearing of the shade trees that pawpaws require. An experimental planting of pawpaw trees on the high school grounds failed to flourish due to its location in an open, sunny field.

Famous Paw Paw natives include labor leader and political activist Joseph "Jo" Labadie, "Paw Paw" Charlie Maxwell, a former Detroit Tigers baseball player who was also known as "Sunday" Charlie due to his propensity for hitting home runs during Sunday games, actress and educator Loretta Long, best known as "Miss Susan" on the long-running children's program Sesame Street, Tony-award nominated choreographer Jerry Mitchell, indie rock band Berwer, and Jason Babin of the NFL's Houston Texans. Roughly equidistant between Chicago and Detroit, the village is also long-rumored to have been the frequent summer residence of notorious gangster Al Capone.
