Historic Detroit

While I’ve never visited Detroit, browsing through the 180 galleries of buildings and monuments on Historic Detroit makes it seem as familiar to me as my own hometown.

Founded in June 2011 by Dan Austin, author of “Lost Detroit: Stories Behind the Motor City’s Majestic Ruins” and former writer, photographer, researcher and webmaster behind the Detroit history site BuildingsofDetroit.com, Historic Detroit serves as a collaborative platform for users to share images and memories of Detroit’s architecture.

Visitors to the site can either search or browse through by place, or sort their results by architect. All contributors to the site maintain full rights on their submissions.
