Fisher Mansion

Description

Lawrence Fisher, founder of Fisher Body Works and president of Cadillac Motors, built his spectacularly ornate mansion in 1927 on the Detroit waterfront. A blend of Italian Renaissance and high Hollywood styles, the villa's rooms are gilded in silver leaf and pure gold, and decorated with artwork from around the world. It's surrounded by acres of elegantly sculpted gardens and grounds. The mansion is now the Bhaktivedanta Cultural Center, featuring an exhibit on India's heritage with a traditional Vedic temple. Call for tour times and admission prices. The mansion is located at the north end of the Detroit River near East Jefferson Avenue and Dickerson at 383 Lenox. (313-331-6740)
