Detroit Church Architecture
Presented by:
Wendy Evans, Wayne State University - Department of Art and Art History
Detroiters built one magnificent house of worship after another, and those sacred structures stand today as symbols of the city. This presentation explores a selection of Detroit’s architectural marvels, from the earliest surviving ones—such as Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church, built 1844-1848—to the legendary Mariners’ Church on Jefferson Avenue.
