Bloomingdale is a village in Van Buren County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 528 at the 2000 census. The village is located within Bloomingdale Township and is the township seat. In the 1930s oil was discovered within the village limits, but pumping has now ceased due to lack of oil. Bloomingdale was thought to be a rising city but when the oil ceased so did the attraction. That is why Bloomingdale doesn't have as many people as we did in the 1930s hence that Bloomingdale is a village not a town. Bloomingdale is considered the midpoint on the popular Kal-Haven Trail, which runs directly through the main four corners and business district. The downtown Augustus Haven Park with its Depot Museum is a popular picnic stop for trail users. Though born in Traverse City, actor David Wayne was raised in Bloomingdale.
