Christ Church in Detroit
Christ Church on Jefferson is the oldest Protestant church in Michigan, dating back to 1845. Many of the founding fathers' names are well known streets in the city like Trowbridge and Campau. Beautiful Tiffany windows grace this church that stands in the shadow of the GM/Renaissance Center. Solomon Sibley was a former mayor of Detroit and one of Christ Church's original members. The Sibley House next door to the church was built in 1848 and serves at the parish rectory. Both are National Register of Historic Places.
