'Fox House' by William G. Robinson

In 1888 brothers E. Crofton and Charles Fox, prominent Grand Rapids lumber barons, commissioned the well-known Grand Rapids architect William G. Robinson to design their home. From the time the construction was finished in 1889, it was called "the Castle" because of its medieval appearance. All of the colorful granite from which the house is built was quarried in Scotland and transported to this country as ballast in a ship.
During the 1980's, the home served as a fine-dining restaurant, The Castle.
