Detroit Boat Club

March 30 2019 | 10:00am to 12:00pm

Tickets available to all members starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, December 11, 2018. No tickets will be sold before this time! Public registration for any remaining tickets begins on December 26.

The Detroit Boat Club Crew was founded in 1839, making them the oldest continually operating rowing club in North America at over 175 years. Commemorate this historic Detroit organization with a tour of their home since 1902, the Detroit Boat Club! Since 1996, the nonprofit Friends of Detroit Rowing has been modestly refurbishing it in order to maintain the stability of a structure so entrenched in the history of Detroit. After several earlier wooden boathouses had burned to the ground, the Club asked Alpheus W. Chittenden, an architect born in Detroit, to build a structure that could withstand fire. When the current boathouse was dedicated on August 4, 1902, it was the first reinforced concrete structure in the United States.
