    The final one was the hardest. The windows, chimney, and entrance match the Angelique, but it appears the brick has been covered with siding, for whatever reason. These street view images are poor, so Benjamin, if you have real photos coming, I'm looking forward to them!

    Default 'The Roxie Residency Detroit'

    My friends bought this house in October, and are currently restoring it in hopes to 'create a space for Writers & Artists to lodge, learn, and show work.' They have their work cut out for them, but are very capable and it will be nice to see the final product. Here is a Facebook info page they put together, as well as their Indie GoGo crowdfunding page

    When I look at a house like this, I look past the bad landscaping and cheap fencing. If you also would, you should notice the beautifully proportioned multi-paned windows with their keystones, the nice (slightly sagging) front porch surmounted by a delicate deco railing, the recessed flat roof gable, the simple belt course and cornice, the slightly projecting center section set off by quoins which also bracket the corners. To me, this house is one of Detroit's (many) hidden jewels.

    Please refer to p69rrh51's post #134 on page 6 of this thread and art_deco_lover's post #657 on page 27 for more discussion and pictures of other work by Zisler in Detroit and Grosse Pointe.

    Patrick, most of the requests require heading to the cardex file and dealing with BSEED. I do not have the time to check them out at the moment. When I get the time I will let you know what I find.

    In between its use by the churches, this building was owned by the Detroit Board of Education and named the Adlai E. Stevenson Building. It was used for educational programs, public meetings, administrative functions, and rented out for various civic occasions. Prophet Jones' lavish funeral was held there in 1971. I gave a speech there when I was in 7th grade as part of a series of events for the then new magnet schools.

    Here is a picture of it when it was Temple Baptist:
