Who are we?

Michigan Heritage Square is representative of the fabric of early Saginaw society and is viewed as one of Saginaw's links to a gone but not forgotten era. The design of the homes reflect the conservative outlook of west Saginaw's leading residents of the time. The homes remain comfortable, fashionable and useful.

The balance of large and small homes and the variety of architectural styles from Georgian and Greek Revival to Italianate and Victorian is a clue to early Saginaw society suggesting that business owners and laborers not only worked but also lived side by side. Hence, they formed one community. Today, this community continues to reflect its proud heritage of diversity and seeks to be a beacon for the region as it moves into a new millennium.
Heritage Square Neighborhood Association (HSNA) was established in 1972.
HSNA is committed to maintaining the historical integrity of the area, while providing a safe and comfortable quality of life for its residents.
