    Take a guided tour and immerse yourself in the long and fascinating history of the Traverse City State Hospital – the 1880-era complex which is now known as The Village at Grand Traverse Commons. A number of guided tours are offered.

    Special tours for groups and photographers are also available. For all tours, dress for the weather as you will be outside for part of the time. Sturdy shoes are encouraged.

    With a million square feet of interior space and 63 acres of grounds, The Village at Grand Traverse Commons obviously has many tales to tell. These tours fill up quickly, so register early.
