The Grosvenor House in Jonesville is like a museum all its own. Usually decked out for Christmastime visitors, it is especially glowing this time of year.
Ebenezer Oliver Grosvenor, for whom the house is named, was once the lieutenant governor and state treasurer for our State of Michigan. He hired the same architect to build his house as the one who built our state capitol!
He moved to Jonesville at age 20 in 1840 and began humbly as a clerk in a store, even sleeping under the counter some nights. By age 30 he had worked his way up, and was doing a lot of work in the local school. Jonesville school district became the first organized school district in the state.
