  • A nice gem located in an interesting area of Detroit. There is a ton of history here and there are often excellent events going on here, like soccer tournaments, ghost tours, Christmas dinners, historical re-enactments, etc. I feel like tourists don’t really go here, but it’s definitely worth a few hours of exploring. You can see freighters up close and look at some old native mounds. There are also a lot of houses and the area is great for photography.
  • Absolutely beautiful. I was able to wander the grounds a bit and it is HUGE!!! The tunnels you can go in are amazing. The buildings are historic and a little decaying, and while that is sad to see them in such a shape. Some the buildings are in nice shape. I would come here again!! 100%
