This is a photo of my great grandparents , John and Hannah (Marsh) Hewitt's, home at 204 Rose Street. in Big Rapids. It was built in 1886 and still stands today. It was restored by George and Kay Janzen in 1976. The first picture was probably taken a short time after it was built, and the second picture is how it appeared in 1993.
