Blanchard House

This fine example of Italianate styling, so popular in the post-Civil War period, has remained structurally unchanged since 1880. This carefully preserved home gives the visitor a glimpse into the lifestyles of our ancestors, and is appropriately listed in both the National Register of Historic Places and the Michigan State Register of Historic Sites.

Constructed of two-course brick, locally fired, then veneered with pink variegated Ionia sandstone, it well deserves its affectionate Spanish name, "La Palistina"-Delightful Home.  Visit to discover more historical treasures in Ionia!
