Grand Rapids Public Library Tour, Including the Local History and Exclusive Furniture Research Library and facilities as well as view a number of original paintings some dating back 160 years or more. We are reserving a date for when the weather is colder and we enjoy being inside.

Also looking into:
Historic Hotels - Researching to see if we may get a tour by the developer of such places that may be closed for renovations.
Lofts Tour
Heritage Hill Walking Tour
- possibly include the Voight House around the Holidays.
Furniture Factory Tour - such as American Seating
El Matador Tortilla Chips Factory Tour
Furniture Market Buildings Tour
- looking to tour buildings that were built at the height of the Furniture Market Convention in the 1910s and 20s.
Monroe Center Historic Tour - This could involve several tours over time highlighting a number of buildings their history and the men and women that built them.
Ladies Literary Club
St. Cecilia Music Center

We're even looking into grabbing a couple iPads and doing a Historic Photos Tour of various places within walking distance of each other in the heart of downtown GR.

Your suggestions are always welcome and appreciated. Let's make this our tour to Discover GR.

Thank You! Jim
