Finally, a magazine that speaks highly of the place we call home.  ”This Old House” magazine loves the Heritage Hill Neighborhood, calling it a “mecca for people who love historic American architecture.”  In the April issue of the magazine, the Heritage Hill Historic District near downtown Grand Rapids was named “one of the best 64 Old House Neighborhoods in the United States.”

“You’ll see everything from Italianate and Chateauesque houses to later Tudor Revivals; there’s also a wealth of Greek and Colonial Revivals, Queen Annes, and even a Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie-style home,” the magazine noted.

“Surrounded by five urban colleges (including Grand Valley State and Kendall College of Art and Design), Heritage Hill is a cultural center, flourishing with artists, philanthropists, and restaurants,” the magazine said.

“Today, you can grab the former castle of a lumber baron or wealthy judge – and walk from home to work in the city’s center – for what amounts to pocket change in other places.”

Heritage Hill is the best place to live in Grand Rapids, Michigan! Its the center of community, great neighbors, new friends, and creativity. Things are happening in Grand Rapids!!
