Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Old Photos of St. John's

While searching for something else on line, I came across these old photos from the former Detroit Publishing Company, now on deposit with the Library of Congress. The first is a picture of St. John's from 1900 to 1910. The second and third are up Woodward the other way, with Central Methodist in the foreground, St. John's, and the spire of the old Woodward Baptist Church behind it (now burned down and replaced by the new Crosswinds Housing Development).
As we approach our 150th Anniversary it is neat to find these things!
