Brush Park Historic District is a 24 block neighborhood in Midtown Detroit. In the 1850s, Edmund Brush, son of the city’s second mayor (Elijah Brush) began developing his family’s property there and elaborate homes were built through the 1880s. Around half of the original 300 homes are left, but many of the 70 Victorian mansions were torn down as the neighborhood began to decline. Those left are surrounded by empty lots—some homes are restored or are stabilized, and others wait their fate.
Patches of hope with an urban garden planted at the corner in the midst of urban decay.
