Facts

  • This Richardson Romanesque-designed building, lies on a small, triangular lot on the northwest side of downtown Detroit.
  • Originally built for the Grand Army of the Republic club members in Detroit, the building included 13 shops and a bank of the ground floor, office space on the second and third floors, and a small auditorium on the fourth floor.
  • By 1934, only a few GAR members were still alive and the building was given to the City of Detroit. The building was then used by the GAR Memorial Association, a women's group that used it until 1973 when the building was effectively abandoned.
