America’s Furniture City 5K Running or Walking Tour

View Map

Over the course of 60 short years, small family-owned furniture shops grew into large-scale furniture manufacturers, earning Grand Rapids the title of Furniture City, America’s Furniture Capital, and The Paris of Furniture Design. Learn as you move through downtown and pass the intriguing remnants of the residential furniture Glory years: 1870 – 1930. Discover why “timing was everything” for our new frontier small city to capture the world’s attention and dominate the economic landscape of Grand Rapids. We will also run by places that connect the dots to today’s thriving office furniture industry.
