The David Whitney House located at 4421 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Whitney’s considerable wealth came from the lumber industry and he used his fortune to construct this expansive stone mansion. The home featured the first personal use elevator in.
This stately Victorian mansion near downtown Detroit was built and owned by J. Hudson, the founder of Hudson Department stores. In 2006 this once abandoned beauty was renovated and turned into a popular bed and breakfast. So glad it was saved.
