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.
