Historic architecture in Grand Rapids
Meyer May House, Grand Rapids The 1908 home is one of the country's most complete Frank Lloyd Wright restorations (left).
Designed for a prominent local clothier, the Prairie-style home was considered revolutionary when it was built. After the original owner died in the 1930s, the house sat vacant for several years. Some rooms were later rented as apartments. Steelcase, an office furniture company headquartered in Grand Rapids, bought the house in 1985, restored it after extensive research and opened it to the public in 1987. Guided tours are free.
