The History of The Kalamazoo House

David and Amelia Lilienfeld, the namesake of the original hotel, built the lovely Victorian home, now known as The Kalamazoo House, in 1878. The Lilienfelds' home was filled with warmth, love, and charity. David and Amelia had two well-behaved young children, Hattie and Edward, which added to the love of liveliness, not to mention William, David’s brother and business partner.

William would continue to reside in the new house for its first few years until moving to expand their business in the Chicago market in 1880. David, a wealthy German immigrant, with his brother, William, owned the D. Lilienfeld & Brothers Cigar Company. Years later they added, to their successful cigar business, wholesale liquor and imports of beers.

Near the end of the nineteenth century, they operated an upscale drinking establishment at the factory level called The Brunswick. The David Lilienfeld House later became known as The Kalamazoo House in tribute to the city’s first hotel.
