About Heritage Hill
Heritage Hill is one of the largest urban historic districts in the country. It was the first “neighborhood” of Grand Rapids and is adjacent to downtown. Its 1,300 homes date from 1848 and represent over 60 architectural styles. These were the homes of lumber barons, teachers, judges, and legislators who shaped our city’s future. Today, the population is equally diverse. Professionals, trades people, artisans and students; singles, couples and families, renters and homeowners; people of all colors, backgrounds and incomes make Heritage Hill home.
Purpose of the Heritage Hill Association
The Heritage Hill Association formed in 1968 to stop a variety of urban renewal projects that would have demolished 75% of the neighborhood. Its purpose is to provide neighbors a way of collectively building a healthy, historically preserved community where people can live and work in a secure and stable environment. Issues include land use, crime and safety concerns, preservation, parking and traffic, education and other quality of life issues.
On-going services provided by the Heritage Hill Association include a bi-monthly newsletter mailed to all 5,000 households; weekly listings of available Heritage Hill apartments; free home security surveys; community organizing; block club assistance; issue alert fliers; community resource referrals; landlord tenant rights and responsibilities and other assistance. Annual events include the Heritage Hill Home Tour held the first full weekend of October; Heritage Hill Night Out Picnic in June; and the December Holiday Potluck and Annual Meeting.
