First Unitarian Universalist Church - Detroit

The First Unitarian Universalist Church of Detroit resulted from the merger in 1934 of two separate liberal faiths, both that had arrived in the city in the early 1800's. The church building at Cass and Forest was designed by the architectural firm of Donaldson and Meier in the Neo-Gothic style with exposed timber trusses and beams. The walls are made trimmed with Indiana limestone. The Skinner organ was brought in from Boston in 1916 and had redwood wooden pipes from California, producing wonderful sounds.
