Bluebell Island

The Historical Society of Grand Rapids, Ohio, was founded in 1976 for the restoration, preservation and interpretation of the historical heritage of the area.  The project was the restoration of the Town Hall Auditorium, where the Society sponsors the summer Musical.  Other projects are six historical markers, winter programs on local history, summer concerts in the Timberframe Pavilion, the Log Cabin information center, Bluebell Island, Lincoln Street, Tow Path markers and the Town Hall Centennial Celebration.

The Society uses its proceeds from the annual Applebutter Fest for its many projects in the Community, including the sponsoring of the Rhythm on the River Concert Series.  Local non-profit organizations raise money for their own projects by providing food services for the Fest visitors.

The Historical Society launched an online version of the 43522 Community News, click the link to see the current version.

St. Patrick Catholic Church

St. Patrick Catholic Church on U.S. 24 at Providence- Neapolis-Swanton Rd. 
west of Grand Rapids was built in 1845 to minister to the Irish digging the Miami & Erie Canal.  
It is the oldest church in the Diocese of Toledo.  Priests began serving the area as early as 1835 
when the now extinct Village of Providence was platted.
