The museum is housed in the main body of the original Stockton home. The large, airy rooms are decorated with ornate plaster work, including ceiling rosettes that anchor the lighting fixtures. The floors are wood with maple and oak detailing. Extensive research has been done so that the original residence has been accurately restored to its former beauty. Period furnishings enhance the rooms wherever possible.
The Stockton Center at Spring Grove was formed in 2002. The Stockton Center building had been vacant and abandoned until Freeman Greer, a Flint architect with a passion for Flint history, had the vision to lead the restoration of this wonderful facility. The Stockton Center at Spring Grove is a 501c3 museum.
