Building Detectives 101: Researching Urban Resources

December 9 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Many of the resources used to form the back story of downtown properties are unique to our library, and include Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps, local Polk City Directories, archival images and documents, real estate listing cards, and newspaper articles. Library Assistant and Architectural Historian Heather Edwards will teach participants how to research downtown commercial spaces using the Grand Rapids History and Special Collections Department resources.
