Perry & Clara McAdow Mansion - Detroit

The McAdow Mansion is currently being used by the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Detroit as offices and meeting rooms. The elaborate Victorian mansion was built in 1891. The McAdows earned their fortune in the gold mines of Montana and lived in this mansion from 1891 to 1897. This home has beautiful paneling, plasterwork, frescos and stained glass like the samples above. The window on the right is called "Shedding Tears", although rumor says tears were shed for a lost child, there is no record of this event.
