What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than wandering through abandoned, century-old houses before they go to auction? This Saturday (4/25), the Detroit Land Bank is opening up eighteen Boston-Edison houses that'll be auctioned off in May. Conditions range fixer-upper to mushy woodpile, with most falling somewhere in-between. Care for a map of what's available? Before you get lost in Pewabic tile solariums and smashed turquoise kitchens, know these things:
· The open house runs from 1-5 pm on Saturday. Pre-register here.
· Click the "WEBSITE" link next to any house for more photos and info.
· They're not on this map, but a handful of Virginia Park houses will also be open Saturday.
· Before visiting any house, you must check-in at 2224 W Boston. It's the glorious tudor in the photo above.
