Voigt House in Grand Rapids

A fine example of victorian architecture can be seen in the historical district of Grand Rapids at the Voigt house. A team of volunteers arrives in November to painstakingly decorate for Christmas according to the late 1800's time period.  The results are stunning.  Hostesses dressed in bygone attire guide visitors through each lovely furnished room breathing life and history into this exquisite home.  What a treat. The last tours are this weekend. Dec 20-30 they hold kids camp where the young ones can learn about 100 year old holiday traditions and get into some hands-on baking and craft-making.
