Battle Creek has been my home for the past 22 years. We moved to Battle Creek when my husband, Kirk, accepted a counseling position with the Lakeview School District. Living in Battle Creek, Michigan has many benefits. The one I enjoy the most is when the sweet smell of cereal wafts through the open windows of my kitchen. My daughter tells of the time her college town was smelling of soy. She was saying she didn't like the smell of it. Someone asked her "What does your town smell like?" She proudly replied, "Froot Loops!"
Battle Creek is known as "The Cereal City". It is firmly grounded in cereal making history. It is the world headquarters for the Kellogg Company. Kellogg's and Post both have cereal manufacturing plants in the city. In addition, the Kellogg name can be found on many landmarks.
