Ann Arbor might have become just another small Michigan village had it not been for one crucial event: its designation as the home of the University of Michigan in 1837. Its subsequent development into a thriving cultural and intellectual community was marked by its extraordinary architecture, from the grand 1878 courthouse to the exquisite original university buildings and fashionable East Huron Street. The expansion of the town and university, the arrival of the automobile, and frequent fires began a transformation of Ann Arbor that led to the tragic demolition of some of its most remarkable structures.
Susan Cee Wineberg's Lost Ann Arbor is a tribute to these long-lost treasures and the 19th century way of life that accompanied them. Researched and written by Ann Arbor historian Susan Cee Wineberg.
