Buildings of Michigan
In Buildings of Michigan, Kathryn Bishop Eckert provides the first study of Michigan's architectural history to encompass the full range of buildings from early settlement to the present and to account for the full spectrum of architectural styles unique to this state. Dividing the state into two regional sections--the Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula--the book examines such structures as the mine locations in the Copper Range, early inns and houses along the Sauk Trail, the sandstone architecture of the Lake Superior region, resort architecture of the Little Traverse region, lighthouses and lifesaving stations of the Michigan shorelines of the Upper Great Lakes, the great houses of automotive industrialists in Grosse Pointe, the factories of Albert Kahn, the work of various local architects, and so on. Buildings of each period, style, type, and material is represented and a balanced selection of structures from urban, suburban, and rural areas are maintained to capture the essence of Michigan's architectural experience.
