Detroit Apartments Home To Horrid Past

Originally home to 24 units, the apartments laid host to a few famous guests, such as James Vernor, the creator of Vernors pop. It also was home to Harvey Firestone, of Firestone tires.

On January 19th, 1905, the apartments showed the city of Detroit, a shocking scene. Forty of its residents had come down with arsenic poisoning. Of all that were poisoned, only two would die.

A housekeeper at the building was accused of the crime, but the charges were soon dropped due to a lack of evidence.
