Allendale Charter Township is a small community in the southeast corner of Ottawa County, Michigan. The population was estimated to be just over 2200 in 2016. The township was founded in 1849 and called Eel River Township. In 1856, it changed its name to Allendale after the local river by that name. The township was created from parts of Grand Haven and Spring Lake townships in 1858. In 1885, residents voted to incorporate as a village and adopted a city charter four years later. The village remained independent until 1960 when it merged with Grand Rapids Township to form Allendale Charter Township. The township is governed by an elected board of trustees who serve four year terms.
Allendale Charter Township was founded Captain William H. Burt and his wife, Margaret Burt. They were the first settlers in Allendale Township, which at that time was part of Kent County. The couple moved to the area from New York City when they heard about the opportunities for farming and raising livestock in West Michigan. The land that would become Allendale Charter Township was purchased from the federal government as part of the Treaty of Chicago in 1833. The treaty established what is now known as West Michigan as Indian Territory, where Native Americans could live freely without being harassed by white settlers or soldiers who wanted their land for themselves. The Burts built their home on what is now known as Lake Drive NW near Coit Lake. They built a sawmill not far away at what is now Coit Lake Road and M-21 South near a small creek which runs into Coit Lake today called Mill Creek (formerly called Crooked Creek). In 1838 Captain Burt sold his property to Benjamin Franklin Coe who then sold it to Henry Wessels who renamed his farm "Wessels" after himself.

Our firm purchases many of the flowers we sell direct from floral farms. We buy from both domestic and international growers. Buying direct offers many great advantages. We are often able to reduce our cost by eliminating the wholesalers. When we purchase direct from the grower, we are able to reduce the time between when the flower is cut at the farm and when it is available to our designers to use in an arrangement. Fresher flowers translate directly into longer vase life for recipients of our arrangements.
We employ a team of very talented floral designers. They create luxurious, upscale flower arrangements. Our delivery team is also one of the best in Michigan. They have years of experience and training. Huisman Flowers provides local same day and express flower delivery service in Allegan, Muskegon and Ottawa counties.
