Saturday July 22, 2017 at 1pm – Celebrate Detroit’s Birthday with a special tour of Cass Corridor!
Walking Tour – The Cass Corridor, like the city of Detroit itself, has undergone many transformations since it was first subdivided following the Civil War. Though many of the architectural wonders were lost by the end of the century, residents fought to restore and improve their neighborhood. Once a hub for counter-culture art, music, and poetry, many buildings are restored or being converted to new uses along with new construction. Departs from the Mackenzie House at 4735 Cass Avenue. Parking: Metered and non metered street parking is available in the immediate area. Paid parking in the lot across the street next to Shangri-La. Purchase tickets here!
