Politics, religion, horse-racing, and money combined
to change Detroit’s horse culture into the present-day
automobile era.
How this happened is explained during a two-hour
historical adventure on Saturday, Oct. 27, when the Village
of Fairview Historical Society presents a unique bus tour of
an area that helped shape the Detroit of the 20th century.
Founded in 1903, the Village of Fairview stretches from
Alter Road to Water Works Park.
Organized by Moira Mahoney, director of development
withThe Village of Fairview Historical Society and Nick
Sinacori, president of The Village of Fairview Historical
Society, highlights of the Fairview tour include:
• the original horse-racing and automotive alley of the
early 1900s;
• original sites of the Detroit Jockey Club and Detroit
Driving Club;
• an ancient Indian burial ground – site of the Sauk and
Fox Indian Massacre
• homes of Belgian, Arts & Crafts and River-Rock
architectural influence near Harbor Island;
