Happy 320th Birthday Detroit!

320 years ago tomorrow on July 24, 1701, Antoine de la Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac realized the success of his plan with mentor and Governor General of New France, Louis de Buade, Comte de Frontenac, to found a new settlement at the south of Lake Huron to increase the security of French interests on the Great Lakes.

Detroiters want to fix up their homes. The path to do that isn't easy.

Rochella Stewart has lived in her Detroit home, near Livernois and Grand River Avenue, for more than six decades. It's where she grew up and it's where she plans to stay. But crumbling conditions in her childhood home make that difficult. Although she was able to get her roof repaired last year, her ceilings are cracking, her front door frame sags and air seeps through windows.
