Hatch House - Walking Tour
Built in 1844-45, five years before Grand Rapids became a city, by Damon Hatch, this charming house is an adaptation of a square Greek temple with hip roof and a skylight over the atrium. The house is constructed of river limestone coated with stucco. The Greek Revival fa�ade is particularly noteworthy. Mr. Hatch enjoyed sitting on his veranda watching the horse drawn streetcars as they made their way to the end-of-the-line at Eastern Avenue. His daughter rosewas, however, the belle of Grand Rapids and Cherry Street was called Rose Street in her honor.
