The East Grand Rapids History Room hosts events throughout the year to increase the understanding of local history for residents and others interested in learning about the history of our area. From virtual seminars, in-person presentations and trolley or walking tours, the History Room offers many ways to learn about the history of our area and connect with others with the same interests.

Events are publicized on the History Room's Facebook page, through the City's e-newsletter and other means.

You can view two of our virtual 2021 YouTube presentations entitled "On The Street Where You Live" featuring History Room Curator Mary Dersch showcasing the history of various homes, commercial and park properties.
