500 Fulton E

Built in: 1900
Style: Georgian Revival
Description:
Waters House
Comments:
Heritage Hill calendar write-up: built as a two-story frame structure in 1900 by Dudley E. Waters, this home was extensively remodeled in 1930. It now stands as a Georgian Revival mansion, in the Adamesque style, with an imposing two-story semicircular portico supported by massive Ionic columns. A galleried terrace leads to the elegant Palladian entry with its large leaded fanlight. Mr. Waters began his career as a lumberman, working with his father, and then entered the banking world in 1891. He was also one of the largest real estate brokers in Grand Rapids. Privately, he had one of the largest collections of wooden cigar store Indians in the United States. HE collected autographs of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and Currier and Ives prints. Truly he was a man of many interests.
