The Grand Island Convention and Visitors Bureau is a nonprofit organization that brings together businesses, attractions, and organizations that rely on tourism. The CVB’s mission is to define Grand Island as a destination & grow the tourism economy. Their presence in downtown Grand Island inside the historic Hedde Building at 201 West Third Street allows them to be in the heart of the city.
Fred Hedde, a pioneer who helped settle Grand Island in the 1850s, built the three-story building in 1887. Over the years, the Hedde Building has housed a multitude of businesses including, the Daily Independent, Woolstenholm and Stern Clothiers, Roger’s Jewelry, and Brodkey Jewelry. The Hedde Building is owned by Amos Anson and Tom Pirnie. The building is undergoing a $3.8 million renovation.
