Concord Grove Educational Center:
Setting and Resources
Located at the Concord Grove Farm, fifteen minutes east of Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Concord Grove Educational Center is based in a 125-year-old Victorian farmhouse, which is used as a meeting place for small seminars, workshops, and discussion groups.
While only a short distance from the city, the educational center is located in a beautiful country setting that is peaceful, relaxing, and congenial to the types of events we sponsor.

Several guest rooms are available at the educational center, including a guest room with a private bath for speakers. Visitors to the educational center are invited to make use of the facilities, including the library and the astronomical observatory.
Concord Grove Astronomical Observatory
A small astronomical observatory is equipped for visual observing, astro-photography, and scientific work. The James C. Veen Observatory is also located about six minutes away by car, and may be used by larger groups by appointment.
Set in a tranquil meadow framed by trees, deer, birds, and other wildlife are frequent visitors to the Concord Grove Observatory.
