The Guardian Building is one of the most significant and striking Art Deco skyscrapers in the world. The building's taller north tower and smaller octagonal south tower are connected with a nave-like block similar to the plan of a cathedral. In fact, the Guardian Building was once promoted as "the Cathedral of Finance." Its grandeur was, and still is, unconventional. Visitors are awestruck by the explosion of color, craftsmanship and blending of Native American, Aztec, and Arts & Crafts influences. Acclaimed guide Ellen Howell will share her vast knowledge of the building and personal anecdotes in this highly anticipated tour.
Tickets are $20 for Detroit Historical Society members and $30 for guests.
