(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Waymarking Edition

Spent several hours wandering around Detroit this weekend.  
Just on the corner of Woodward and Warren are some amazing places!

Hecker Mansion

Inns on Ferry Street - the "inn" consists of 5 houses in a row

Josephine Ford Sculpture Garden in front of the Creative Center

Detroit Institute of Arts - Rodin's Thinker is out front

Detroit Public Library

Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

Detail on the Maccabees Building

Park Shelton Art Nouveau Building

Patterns of Detroit Mural - Look!  A Quilt!

Scarab Club

Freer House - once the home of the Peacock Room

I'm not saying all of Detroit is like this... but you don't have to look far to see remnants of its Golden Age!

"Not all who wander are lost".  Visit to see more!
