Since 1969, the annual Heritage Hill Weekend Tour of Homes welcomes you to our historic Heritage Hill neighborhood, one of the country’s largest urban historic districts recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. More than 1,300 homes stand within the boundaries of Heritage Hill and date from 1843. Nearly every style of American architecture, from Greek Revival to Prairie, is represented in the district. At the turn of the century, this was the city’s most prestigious residential area. Today the neighborhood is an array of lifestyles and passions. Professionals, artisans, students, homeowners and renters share this great place we call home.

Annual Weekend Tour of Homes: the Third Weekend in May 

Each year, a different line-up of 6-7 private homes and 1-2 historic buildings are open; each with a unique story. During Tour, guides stationed at each house will share information and highlight special features. An array of architecture, decorating styles and urban gardens await you.

Home Tour is the largest fundraiser of the Heritage Hill Association. It is also the biggest promotional effort of our neighborhood and a showcase for the benefits of historic preservation. Over 300 volunteers contribute to make the weekend a success. All proceeds go right back into programs for the Heritage Hill neighborhood. These include block club organizing, crime prevention, land use planning, engaging community resources, and preservation of the district’s historic character. This Old House magazine rates Heritage Hill as one of the best historic neighborhoods in the United States.

Walkability, cultural diversity and close proximity to Grand Rapids’ colleges and medical facilities, as well as the downtown entertainment and cultural center … and the hip, new and energizing Uptown business districts … Heritage Hill has it all!

Heritage Hill dates back to 1843 and was named by This Old House as one of the “Best Old House Neighborhoods” in the country. Its 1,300 homes represent Michigan’s finest collection of 19th and 20th century American architecture.
