We are honored this evening to have Rodney Patrick, President of the City Council of Highland Park, as our speaker. In addition to his many civic duties, Mr. Patrick has a strong interest in historic homes in both Highland Park and Detroit. In conjunction with Schoolcraft Community Council, he has taught classes on Historic Home Architecture and provided tours of notable homes in Detroit and Highland Park.  Tonight, his topic is the Architecture of Craftman Homes. He will discuss homes designed by Leonard Willeke, Albert Kahn and other architects that worked in both in Highland Park and Indian Village. His own home is a fine examples of Leonard Willeke’s domestic work. Mr. Patrick is sure to provide us with insights about the development of historic neighborhoods in Michigan and around the USA.
