Description

Front view of Henry Ford Hospital's education building in Detroit, MI, designed by Albert Kahn, c. 1925. “The four story Education Building is positioned east of the Nurse's Home, just off the ends of the U; the two buildings are separated by a sunken garden. It is in the same Georgian Revival style, with the main entrance in the center of the north elevation accessed by a monumental stair. The basement and first floor walls are clad in limestone with red brick walls above. Limestone quoins extend the height of the walls at every corner. There is a limestone cornice with modi I lions at the base of the red brick parapet wall. A clay tile hip roof with round roof dormers protrudes above the parapet,”—National Register of Historic Places Registration Form, dated July 19, 2013.
