The magnificent looking Van Buren County Courthouse stands in the city of Paw Paw. Construction began in 1901 and took a year and a half to complete. It replaced an earlier courthouse that is now the Paw Paw City Hall. The town of Paw Paw got its name from the Paw Paw river that flows nearby. It was named by the Native Americans for the paw paw fruit that grew along the banks of the river.
