John F. Dodge Mansion

Harbor Hill, Grosse Pointe, Michigan

Built 1920, for John Francis Dodge (1864-1920) and his wife, Matilda Rausch (1883-1967). This Tudor-Revival mansion was to be their weekend/summer home but when John died before its completion his widow did not continue with the project, instead later focusing her attentions on Meadow Brook Hall. The 100-room mansion that had cost $4 million was neither finished nor ever occupied. It was finally demolished in 1941 and the Harbor Hill neighbourhood was developed shortly afterwards.
