Project Description

The construction of the Pastime Vaudette (now the Wealthy Theatre) at 1130 Wealthy in 1911 inaugurated the development of the commercial district at Wealthy Street and Fuller Avenue.  During the following twenty years, houses constructed along the streetcar line in the 1880s and 1890s were replaced by one- and two-story commercial structures where businesses provided a wide range of goods and services for neighborhood residents and streetcar commuters.  The Grand Rapids National Bank opened a branch in the newly completed 1127 Wealthy in 1925.
