Our neighbors to the north, in the Grandmont Rosedale area, are having their eighth annual neighborhood-wide open house this Sunday, May 5. As many as 20 historic homes in the Grandmont, Rosedale Park, Minock Park, and North Rosedale Park neighborhoods in northwest Detroit will be open for tours from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Many of these historic homes were built in the 1920s, with some of them built even earlier. The entire area is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A free shuttle will take visitors to on a self-guided tour of the houses, with people available at each location to answer any questions.

The tours start at the North Rosedale Park Community House (18455 Scarsdale St.). Visitors will receive a list of historic homes for sale that will be open for tours that day. They will also have to option to view a brief presentation about the neighborhood, learn about home financing options, and get information about a 15 year tax abatement available to new buyers. One can also meet with current residents of the five neighborhoods that make up the Grandmont Rosedale area.

This tour is presented by the Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation. More information is available on their website.
