Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, Indian Village
Detroit's Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church just celebrated their 156th anniversary this month. Their summer outdoor concerts are put on by Jenny King using the 23 bell carillon --the oldest and smallest in Michigan. Stephen Warner plays the 1925 Skinner organ in the sanctuary in between playing the organ at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor and repairing other Skinner organs in the state. The church is a part of Detroit's Indian Village which is bordered by Jefferson, Seminole, Burns and Iroquois Streets and includes about 350 beautiful homes built around 100 years ago. The Home & Garden tour of the village is this Saturday, June 5th.
