Michigan Veteran Homes - Legislation
IN OUR GREAT STATE, MICHIGAN VETERAN HOMES IS AN INSTITUTION
Michigan Veterans' Facility Act 152 of 1885
The first Michigan Veteran Home opened over a century ago in Grand Rapids, as a response to the impact of the Civil War on the state’s population. In 1885, the Michigan Legislature passed legislation establishing a Michigan Soldiers Home, with the goal of providing housing, medical and nursing care to Veterans. Overseen by a six-member board of managers, the original building opened in 1886.
