See What You Can See
If you’re a fan of historic homes, a leisurely drive through Detroit’s Indian Village — about three miles east of downtown — is worth the trip. Indian Village is an affluent neighborhood located on Burns, Iroquois and Seminole Streets between Jefferson and Mack Avenues. The area encompasses more than 350 homes, most elegantly restored or well maintained by proud owners.
Many of the homes were designed by famous architects such as Albert Kahn and William Stratton, in a variety of styles and sizes, from carriage houses to mansions with more than 12,000 square feet of space. Original owners included prominent auto industry executives. Gardens are also a point of pride, as evidenced by the active Men’s and Women’s Garden Clubs.
If you’re lucky enough to be in town at the right time of year, grab tickets for the Historic Indian Village Home and Garden Tour (first Saturday in June) or the Holiday Home Tour in December for an up-close look at these well-preserved gems.
