“Symphony of Design” – Parade of Homes #6

This home designed by McClure was constructed for Grand Rapids’ inaugural Parade of Homes on Parade Dr. NW. in the north side of town.

The home was dubbed the “Symphony of Design” on a street of other mid-century homes developed by the likes of Charles O’Bryon & E. John Knapp. McClure’s home makes up the #6 stop on the tour, at the crown of the cul-de-sac at the end of Parade Drive.

Much of this feature is based on information thoughtfully gathered and researched by West Michigan Modern. An archived version of their 1959 Grand Rapids Parade of Homes article can be found here.
