Heritage Hill

Signup for Email Alerts

Heritage Hill is, quite literally, first class. With homes dating from 1848, Heritage Hill is the City of Grand Rapids' first residential neighborhood. In 1973, it became the city's first historic district. And today Heritage Hill remains one of the largest urban districts in the United States. The Meyer May, Frank Lloyd Wright's first commission in Michigan, is just one premier attraction.


The neighborhood boasts hundreds of architecturally significant structures and more than 60 distinct architectural styles. Enthusiasts can take a self-guided walking tour or join the highly popular annual two-day public tour hosted by the neighborhood association in October.


Located immediately east of the central city, Heritage Hill was once home to the entrepreneurs, educators, and politicians that shaped the city. The neighborhood today remains equally diverse and prestigious.
