Yet another abandoned house in Detroit…

Part of a series on abandoned houses in Detroit, Michigan. This house, formerly located in Detroit, and since demolished, is representative of the type of housing that existed in Brush Park, an upscale suburban neighborhood from the turn of the 20th century. Eventually the area was abandoned by the former wealthy inhabitants for suburban neighborhoods further away. Suburban sprawl came early to Detroit, and the effects are still felt by the city.

Abandoned house in Brush Park, Detroit, Michigan.

An abandoned house in Brush Park. At one point it was owned by a man with intentions of renovation. The owner fell ill, or passed away (I don’t remember which), and the house became abandoned once again.
