HND - House Next Door
This house was dated 1845-50. The design features Greek Revival design elements.
Other than General Grant's house this is the only house with a front pediment design still standing in the City of Detroit.
The Trowbridge House, circa 1826, located on Jefferson Ave. is a modified originally featured central entrance.
This house is located in Corktown on Sixth Street and is not original to this site.
The house first appeared on the 1918 Sanborn Map.
The house was moved to its current location during the construction of the Michigan Central Rail Road Tunnel to Windsor 1905-07.
The construction of the railroad tunnel came before the Michigan Central Station, 1910-13.
Research is continuing.
The house is located next to the Workers Row House (circa 1849) and is known as " House Next Door"
