When the Traverse City library decided to move from its longtime home on 6th Street, many wondered what would happen to the building. Fortunately, the Grand Traverse Heritage Center moved into the space. In addition to hosting different community events (such as the Festival of Trees and the Festival of Trains) the Center has exhibits that feature bits of Traverse City history. The building is located on 6th Street which is full of historic homes. The Center is a great place for a family outting.
