GR Legacies and Legends in Bronze Walking Tour
GR Legacies & Legends in Bronze
The Grand Rapids Community Legends Project was established by local philanthropist and businessman, Peter Secchia and his family, in 2008 with the intent of keeping local history alive. They made a pledge to provide downtown Grand Rapids with a selection of no less than 25 bronze tributes of Grand Rapids’ most notable contributors. 11 years later, there are eleven 7-foot tall bronze sculptures placed throughout the urban core that have been gifted by the Project. In the words of Peter Secchia, “How will you know who you can be, if you do not know who you have been?” Discover who, what, and where on this blended tour of statue art and local history.
