Seeing Detroit from the Ground Up
Detroit is known for it’s historic architecture, with many of the buildings dating back to the 1900-1920’s. We will tour the neo-Gothic structure of Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church located in the historic Indian Village neighborhood, have lunch at the Whitney Restaurant including a historian led tour of the 22,000 square foot former mansion, and tour the exquisite Guardian Building. A local architect will hop on the bus for a tour of downtown Detroit, highlighting some of the architecture, which gave Detroit the name “Paris of the Midwest”, as well as insights about the new developments. This trip includes standing, slow walking at the Guardian Building and the church, and some steps and stairs that are required at the church and restaurant. Boarding begins at 8:00 a.m. to ensure prompt departure at 8:30 a.m.
