Detroit Observatory

bhl_hs2510_4074_2853_full__0_nativeThe Detroit Observatory was the first observatory built in the state of Michigan and is the second-oldest building on U-M’s campus. In 2005, the Detroit Observatory became a division of the Bentley Historical Library.

Having undergone a full restoration in 1998, the building stands essentially as it was in 1854.
