It’s that time of year again—time to explore the stunning historic homes of Heritage Hill! Mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, May 18 & 19, 2024, and get ready for an unforgettable journey through one of the country’s largest urban historic districts.


Since its inception in 1969, the annual Heritage Hill Weekend Tour of Homes has been a beloved tradition, inviting you to explore the architectural gems of our neighborhood. Heritage Hill, recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, boasts over 1,300 homes dating back to 1843. This area is a living museum of American architecture, showcasing styles from Greek Revival to Prairie. At the turn of the century, Heritage Hill was the most prestigious residential area in Grand Rapids, and today, it remains a vibrant community filled with diverse lifestyles and passions. Professionals, artisans, students, homeowners, and renters all call this unique place home.

What to Expect on the Tour
Each year, the tour features a different lineup of 6-7 private homes and 1-2 historic buildings, each with its own unique story. As you walk through these magnificent homes, guides stationed at each location will provide fascinating insights and highlight special features. You’ll experience a wide array of architectural styles, decorating trends, and urban gardens that make Heritage Hill so special.

Why You Should Attend
The Home Tour is not just a chance to see beautiful homes; it’s also the largest fundraiser for the Heritage Hill Association. This event is our neighborhood’s biggest promotional effort and showcases the incredible benefits of historic preservation. Over 100 dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to ensure the weekend is a success, and all proceeds go directly back into programs that support the Heritage Hill neighborhood.
