At one time, this house at 320 Power Street was the home of Lloyd and Ruth Copeland. Lloyd was a barber here in the village, according to my traveling companion last summer as we drove around and he reminisced about various homes.
The Copeland name can be found nearly as far back as the settling of this area in the early 1800s. In later years, Joseph Copeland was a proprietor of the Commercial Hotel, which used to stand at the southwest corner of South Grand and Grand River avenues. Currently, Wayne Copeland serves as both president and manager of the village.
