About This Project

The initial goal of this project is to Save the Stack. Funds collected will first be directed toward its preservation.  Funds in excess of those needed to Save the Stack will be earmarked toward public components of the building with an eye toward education, presenting the history of the factory, and displaying the instruments created there. Tours of the Heritage Guitar Company will continue to be offered to the public.

The location will become more accessible to the public and will complement other community attractions such as the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Portage Celery Flats Interpretive Center, Kalamazoo Nature Center, the Air Zoo, the Gilmore Car Museum and other educational and cultural institutions.
