Laketown Township was settled by Dutch immigrants who arrived in the area in 1847. Originally part of Newark Township, Laketown was set off in 1858 and named for its proximity to Lake Michigan. Officials did not have a meeting hall until 1884 when they had this structure built on land deeded by Klass and Geesje Oostema. The simple hall served as a community center until 1988 when a new one was dedicated. Much of the original interior remains intact.
