Thompson Home

This Victorian structure was completed in 1884. It was named for wealthy Detroit businessman David Thompson. In his will Thompson instructed his wife Mary to use part of his estate to found a charitable institution. She commissioned George DeWitt Mason, prominent local architect and a leader in architectural education, to design the building. It stands as a distinctive example of his early work. The one story addition was constructed in 1964.
