McCabe-Marlowe House

The GRCC Foundation owns and operates a century-old Victorian hospitality house located in the Heritage Hill district in Grand Rapids. Built in 1865, the McCabe-Marlowe House was purchased by the Grand Rapids Junior College Foundation in 1980 from Miss Marie McCabe and Miss Wilma Marlowe, former instructors at the college. The McCabe-Marlowe House has been designated as a State of Michigan Historical Landmark and proudly stands as a reminder of our rich heritage.

To use the house

Any donor contributing $500 or more annually to the Foundation is allowed to use the house for hosting special events, small group meetings, family functions, parties or distinguished clients. Its unique Victorian setting and quiet, formal atmosphere will make your event a memorable one. Food is prepared and served by our Banquet Manager and students from GRCC’s renowned Culinary Arts program. You may select from a wide range of menu items for breakfast, lunch, dinner or hors d’oeuvre parties.
