Fulton Street is the East - West corridor through the center of the Grand Rapids. The homes and buildings on this street, and on neighboring streets, have stories to tell. They symbolize the prosperity of the lumber days, the boom of the furniture manufacturing era and the growth and current renaissance of our dynamic city. Representing Grand Rapids history, commercial success and consistently strong design sensibility are homes and commercial buildings like the Abraham Pike House (1848), the Mathias Alten House made famous by the artist who used it as a studio, the Loraine Building (1902), the Willard Building (1930) with its stunning terra cotta trim, the modern Herpolsheimers store (1948), the modern expressionist Temple Emanuel (1954) and the contemporary U.I.C.A. building (2011). Grand Rapids has lost some architectural gems on Fulton Street, and we take time to share some of those as well.
Drive this route or walk it and rediscover the beautiful homes and buildings you have passed so many times. Note: watch for more information and photos to be added. There are many more buildings to share!
