Vicksburg is located in Kalamazoo County on West Hwy St off of I-31 and north of Three Rivers.

Vicksburg is part of the Kalamazoo-Battle Creek, Michigan metro area.

Vicksburg was named after settler John Vickers, who came to the area in 1831 and built a grist mill on the falls on Portage Creek. After going through several name changes, (including, Holland, Lincoln and Brady, after the township and General Hugh Brady, commander of the US Army at Detroit), the issue was settled in 1871 when it was incorporated as a village.

Today, Vicksburg's beautiful setting on Sunset Lake along with the turn-of-the-century buildings downtown make for a relaxing atmosphere, and a nice diversion for shopping or an afternoon stroll. It is supported primarily by small business and a few production facilities, including paper manufacturing.
