The village of Three Oaks is located in the southwest corner of Michigan, just 5 miles from the shores of Lake Michigan and within 2 miles of the Indiana border. The village was first settled by Henry Chamberlain in 1850 and became a village in 1867. The village was originally called Chamberlain's Siding but was changed to Three Oaks.
 
Three Oak's hometown pride is evident during its Flag Day Celebration in June. The celebration and Flag Day Parade is (we say) the largest in the country.
 
The Christmas movie Prancer, released in 1989, was filmed on location largely in the village of Three Oaks (other locations in nearby LaPorte, Indiana were also used). You will hear "Three Oaks" mentioned throughout the movie.
 
Three Oaks is also home to the Warren Featherbone Factory, which was built over a century ago to strip turkey feathers of their quills to use in women's garments of the era, such as corsets, which used "stiffeners". The factory today is the site of The Acorn Theatre, The Journeyman Distillery (which provides tours and tastings) and The Featherbone Pottery and Antiques Store.
