    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 which take participants through the historic structure and the surrounding beautiful grounds. Tour guides provide detailed information about the construction of the asylum; the uses of various structures on the campus; the care and treatment provided to those struggling with mental issues who called the facility home; the passionate efforts made to save the beautiful structure from the wrecking ball and so much more.

    The Village at Grand Traverse Commons is the largest historical renovation project in the western hemisphere. With a million square feet of interior space and 63 acres of grounds, there are obviously many tales to be told!

    Guided History Walking Tours, Twilight Tours and Village History, Wine and Beer Tours are provided for adults; the Missing Spires Tour is appropriate for folks of all ages.
