Caledonia's development began with the construction of the Caledonia Dam and lock in 1834. The Grand River Navigation Company system made the Grand River completely navigable by boat. Shipping on the River boomed in its early years. In 1980 the current dam was built. No longer navigable, the dam remains as a memento of the community's river-trasnport past.
