Special Thursday evening tour!

The Freer House is considered to be one of the most significant historic buildings in Michigan, both for its unique shingle style design and for its association with Detroit industrialist and art collector, Charles Lang Freer. Built in 1892 and designed by the Philadelphia architect Wilson Eyre, the Freer House is referred to by historian Thomas Brunk as “the original Freer Gallery of Art.” Acquired by the Merrill Palmer School in 1920, the house today serves as the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute of Wayne State University.

William Colburn, Freer House Director, will describe the building’s rich history and plans for future public interpretation and restoration. A brief video on the history of Freer and the Freer House will be shown.
