Inscription.  
In the mid-70s, Toledoans Don and Audrey Entenman took a Sunday drive upriver and discovered a "Victorian Jewel", Grand Rapids, Ohio.

Over the next several decades, the couple's love of history, restoration, and an entrepreneurial vision helped transform our Village to the vibrant, beautiful community it is today.
