Fire Destroys Detroit's First Unitarian Church; Final Service to Be Held Tonight at Church Site

The fire-ravaged ruins of the 123-year-old former home of Detroit's First Unitarian Church will host a final service at 7:30 p.m. today (May 18, 2014), the News Daily website reports.

A fire destroyed the vacant church yesterday.

The group Preservation Detroit is organizing the service. It says the ceremony will have music and readings, including a speech delivered at the First Unitarian's first service November 29, 1890.

The Romanesque Revival-style building joined the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It has been vacant for about 10 years.
