Several Kalamazoo buildings were open to the public during the Hidden Kalamazoo 2017 tour. Here we take a look through the Park Trades building. 

The Hidden Kalamazoo tours started in 2013.

The tour benefits the Kalamazoo Historic Preservation Commission, founded in 1965, to fund projects that illuminate our heritage. Since 2013, the tour has raised over $40,000.

The Park Trades building started life as the Kalamazoo Loose Leaf Binder Company and later as Saniwax Paper where they made bread wrappers. Now the building is home to several artists and craftsmen.

There were seven buildings on the tour with a bonus "mystery" building that was removed at the last minute because of safety concerns.
