Information About Park/Area:Parma Community Information -- Parma is located in western Jackson County on I-94. It is a rural community supported by local agriculture and some small business. It also functions as an adjunct commuter town to the greater Jackson area, about 10 miles to the east. The downtown area features a well-kept railroad depot adjacent to many well preserved turn-of-the-century style buildings along the main street area.
Parma History -- Parma was first settled by Eli and James Gould in 1833, who first called it: "Groveland" after a noticeable group of trees in the town. It also received a nickname of "Cracker Hill" during that time. When application was made for a post office in 1862, it was renamed for Parma, New York, from which many of the town residents had moved. It was incorporated as a village in 1864. Parma was originally located a few miles east of its current location along the Michigan Central Railroad at a stop known as Gidley's Station. Part of this grove still exists where Grove St. curves around a copse of trees near its intersection with Westlawn St. in the eastern half of Parma.
