The David Whitney House located at 4421 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Whitney’s considerable wealth came from the lumber industry and he used his fortune to construct this expansive stone mansion. The home featured the first personal use elevator in the city of Detroit and in today’s economy would cost over $10 million dollars. Detroiters today know the building simply as The Whitney, one of midtown’s favorite restaurants.

uncertain-frontier: 82 Alfred St, Brush Park, Detroit by Equinox27 on Flickr. This one still stands and is occupied on the west end of Alfred Street. It was built for JP Donaldson in the 1870’s, relatively early for Brush Park. For a time it was used as a boarding house and is now again a single family residence. It appears to be intact on the exterior at least!UPDATE
