Do you remember a time when shopping was an adventure? When a bus ride downtown ended at an enormous red-brick store with glittering window displays? Do you reminisce about riding smooth, shiny escalators from floor to floor, or having a Maurice Salad in a gracious, hushed dining room high up in the sky? Maybe you enjoyed hunting for bargains below street level, or browsing for books in Detroit’s largest book shop? Maybe you recall the smell of exotic fragrances wafting through the air on the sumptuous first floor of Hudson’s, Detroit’s World-Famous Department Store.

If you do cherish memories like these, come join architect and historian Bruce Allen Kopytek as he leads you on an intoxicating journey of exploration through this lost Detroit landmark. Along the way, you’ll discover the rags-to-riches story of Joseph L. Hudson, the culinary delights of Hudson’s restaurants, and the stories of people that made it all happen – right here in Detroit.

Registration is required. Register here or call 586.751.5377.
