(A short history of the Boston-Edison neighborhood.)
By the early 1900s, well-to-do Detroit leaders were moving out of the downtown area to new developments. One of the most upscale and prominent was the Boston-Edison neighborhood, located just west of Woodward Avenue in the city's mid-north area and named for some of the streets involved....
The result was a gracious neighborhood that has retained its elegance over the decades, even long after the original families moved out. Today, the district is home to an eclectic group of people, some of whom have restored the houses to their original splendor.
