Welcome to
The Village at Grand Traverse Commons

We invite you to come experience The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, where one of the largest historic preservation and adaptive reuse redevelopments in the country is underway. A beautiful solution to urban sprawl, The Village is the unique renovation of dozens of historic buildings formerly known as the Traverse City State Hospital.

Step Into History
Join us for a Historic Tour of The Village campus, exploring unrenovated buildings and a brick steam tunnel built in 1883, all while learning about our unique history and current happenings.

Events For All Ages

Special events and social gatherings are an integral part of life in The Village. We play host to several unique festivals, farm markets, concerts, celebrations and more!
