jonathanpeters86 Bethany Presbyterian Chapel/Zion Progress Baptist Church
Address: 7835 E. Lafayette
Built: 1897
Architect: Nettleton, Kahn & Trowbridge
The triumvirate of George Nettleton, Albert Kahn and Alexander Trowbridge worked together on only two projects: the original Children's Hospital and Bethany Presbyterian Chapel. Children's Hospital was demolished long ago, making this house of worship the firm's only extant work. The small Gothic chapel was designed for a well-to-do parish in Detroit's affluent West Village neighborhood.
The building, now known as Zion Progress Baptist Church, serves a predominantly African-American congregation.

Last year, the church made national news when Bishop Allyson D. Nelson Abrams, the congregation's first female pastor, resigned after revealing her same-sex marriage. #Detroit #Eastside #WestVillageDetroit #GothicRevival #AlbertKahn #archi_ologie

jonathanpeters86 George Leadley House
Address: 82 King
Built: 1899
Architect: Nettleton & Kahn
In 1896, Albert Kahn formed a partnership with George W. Nettleton and Alexander Trowbridge, former colleagues of Kahn's during his time with Mason & Rice. The trio's largest project was the original 1896 Children's Hospital, located on St. Antoine. After Trowbridge left the following year to take a job at his alma mater, Cornell University, the firm continued as the duo of Nettleton & Kahn.

Lost in Kahn's pioneering industrial and commercial work is the fact that his roots were in residential architect. Located in Detroit's North End, this 2½-story brick dwelling was designed for George Leadley, a successful florist. The home is a stunning example of the English Renaissance style and similar to that of the firm's abode for Bernard Ginsburg on Adelaide Street in Brush Park, built the previous year.
The Leadley residence is currently an adult care facility. #Detroit #NorthEndDetroit #NewCenter #EnglishRenaissance #AlbertKahn #archi_ologie
