The Acton Building, home to The Acton Institute (www.acton.org) and West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology (www.wmcat.org) is a historic building that has recently been renovated and restored to emulate its original exterior design. Originally built in 1929 and known as the Watson Building, the brand new Acton building features a beautifully restored exterior, and the interior showcases restored hardwood floors, original wood beams and posts, with exposed wooden rafters and support beams. This building at the corner of Sheldon and Fulton is one of Grand Rapids most visible and beautiful historic buildings. Attention to detail, and an architectural faithfulness to the original design were paramount in this new remodeling.
