Kalkaska was first settled in 1855 by William Copeland. By 1872 the railroads were being built further north Mr. Abbot and Mr. Thompson speculated that the railroad would come through what is now the town of Kalkaska and built a mill in early 1873. They were right and Kalkaska became the county seat. The mainstays of revenue were lumbering and farming. When they declined in the early 1900's so did the population. In the 1970's oil and natural gas were discovered.
