431 Lyon NE
An 1868 farm house that provides a modern living to a young couple. At the time this house was built — and sitting outside the 1850’s city boundaries — the town’s directory had no house number for it, only a description of its location: “on the north side of Lyon, between Prospect and College.”
168 College NE
A 1915 Denver Bungalow, regaled by neighbors at the time as quite the modern-looking home. This eclectic residence is one of the “newest” homes in this northeastern section of the Hill.
265 Madison SE
An 1885 Queen Anne house that served as a parsonage for the First Methodist Church through nearly two and a half decades. Now it’s the home of a couple and their dream: a charming bed and breakfast with a decidedly Scottish flavor.
451 Paris SE
A 1901 beauty that has just experienced a loving return to its single family beginning from its 60’s renovation to three apartments. The owner, a young resident surgeon, is making her contribution to the vitality of the Hill.
644 Union SE
A wonderful home built in 1910 that was converted to two apartments in the ’30’s and virtually untouched (except for superb decorating by only its 4th owner) since then. This American Foursquare still retains — inside and out — all the dignity and charm of its past.
529 Madison SE
A 1912 beauty that was built by the brother of Meyer May. A two-story apartment is open that features a sunroom converted to a gorgeous kitchen. A beautiful bedroom/office suite upstairs and a graphic studio in the basement — there’s so much room in this place, you’d never suspect there were 3 other apartments in the house.
556 East Fulton
A classic bungalow built in 1916 is notable for the fact that one family owned and occupied the house for nearly 65 years. The current owners, a local morning on-air newscaster and his wife are only the 5th owners of this beautiful home.
541 Paris SE
A home described as having Prairie Foursquare styling built about 1905. This workingman’s home has many extras on the inside that belie its “everyman” history.
17 Union SE
A 1917 apartment building reminiscent of the classic brownstones of much larger cities. Built on what had once been part of the front yard of the Italianate up the hill, this building characterizes apartment living in the Hill, then and now!
450 Madison SE
The perennial Tour favorite! Commissioned in 1908 by a prominent Grand Rapids clothier, this incredible home was designed by America’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. After suffering years of neglect, it was meticulously restored by Steelcase, Inc. in 1987.
540 Cherry SE
Community Counseling and Personal Growth Ministry – This 1847 mansion is considered one the Michigan’s finest examples of Greek Revival architecture. It features rare mural wallpaper by French artist Jean Zuber.

First Church of Christ Scientist – This 19th century Greek Revival has been home to the church goers since 1905.
115 College SE – the Voigt House Victorian Museum
Built in 1895 by local businessman, Carl Voigt, this opulent structure is really a romantic adaptation of a French chateau. Home to two generations of the Voigt family, the mansion is furnished with their belongings. The Voigt House is a property of the Public Museum of Grand Rapids.
