Battle Creek, Michigan (1831)

Battle Creek, Michigan began as the village of Milton, founded in 1831. By 1850, it was a rapidly growing grain, flour and saw mill center, and the name was changed to Battle Creak (named for a skirmish between a surveyor and 2 Indians). 

From its founding Battle Creek had welcomed various non-conformist social and religious groups, including Quakers, Spirtualists, and Seventh-day Adventists. The dietary and health principles of the Seventh-day Adventists influenced Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (director of the Battle Creek Sanitarium) his brother W.K. Kellogg and C.W. Post (a patient) in the eventual development of breakfast cereal foods. Battle Creek became the home of America's breakfast cereal industry.
