This National Register of Historic Places Multiple Resource Area includes seven structures and one demolished building near Detroit’s Cultural Center and Wayne State University. I have listed the date of construction, the architect and the architectural style. Many buildings on or near the campus of Wayne State University are listed on the federal or state register of historic places but are not included in this Multiple Resource Area. Indeed, the state and federal Cultural Center Historic District is not included.
