2020 Preservation Detroit Midtown Saturday Tour

Detroit Midtown Tour: 1st and 3rd Saturdays
On the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, we explore the exciting Midtown neighborhood, home to dramatic changes in recent years. Set on Detroit’s original ribbon farms, this dynamic neighborhood became an upscale enclave for Detroit’s movers and shakers! See some of the city’s most cherished historic homes and avant-garde businesses. Transformed from “Piety Hill” to “Skid Row” to today’s vibrant urban neighborhood, Midtown is full of distinctly Detroit stories.
The tour departs from Avalon International Breads at 422 West Willis. We’ll meet just outside the door.
