MICHIGAN HERITAGE HOME PROGRAM

The Michigan Heritage Home® program recognizes houses that were constructed at least 100 years ago and are in substantially original condition. That designation comes with a handsome cast-aluminum plaque that lets everyone know that your home has its own rich heritage and historical significance. This distinguished plaque, authorized by the Historical Society of Michigan, will remind both new and longtime community members of your home’s contribution to your shared heritage.
