Official Kent County Website:

The county was named for James Kent, legal scholar and chief justice of the New York Supreme Court and dates from 1831. On March 22, 1842, the state of Michigan legislature changed the name of the county seat from Kent to Grand Rapids.

Settlers from the east began arriving in the 1820's and the Grand Rapids area became the furniture manufacturing capital of America by the turn of the century. The current population of Kent County is about 500,000, making it the second largest metropolitan center in the state of Michigan.
