We build community when we share our stories - whether they be a memory, an experience or just simply telling what we think is great about this place. The Rapidian created a special story fort for SiTE:LAB's Preview Party on Tuesday, September 23, at The Morton. The ticketed event was a benefit, with all proceeds going to The Rapidian. While there, we captured many memories of the building we were in, the historic Morton Hotel.

Evelyn Searl remembers attending a ball created for young adults in Grand Rapids at The Morton Hotel. As a young interior designer working downtown, she would also often meet friends at the restaurant after work, and is excited to see The Morton restore the building's former glory.
