The Restoration Boom: Preservation & Change in 1980s Grand Rapids
The 1980s kicked off a transformation and revitalization of downtown Grand Rapids, motivating historic building restoration and inspiring new construction. A combination of urban reinvestment and a growing interest in historic restoration changed the city's landscape and helped restore many older buildings to their historic state.

Pamela VanderPloeg, architectural historian, educator, and administrator of ArchitectureGrandRapids.org, will share buildings' stories from this era. This will include many photographs and primary research materials to help illustrate the changes the 1980s brought to Grand Rapids.
