Discovering Grand Rapids: A Walking Tour

Amble the Streets and Uncover the Deets

 

*Grand Rapids was hardly more than a fur trading post when two rivals made it a much more difficult city for everyone to live in. We'll stand on their battle line!

*What had farmers driving wagons 100-miles here for the rare product that built Grand Rapids before it was furniture city?

*What did one guy trade for the removal of the massive river stones that used to make the rapids?

*Which Grand Rapids business leader bossed around state governors and was suspected of paying for the murder of a state senator? (No, he was never convicted... but if you see his ghost, you can ask him.)

*Grand Rapids' own President Ford is thanked today for one brave decision, but it's also the same one that lost him the election.
