Frederick J. Fisher, the eldest of the seven Fisher brothers who started the Fisher Body Company and changed the face of automobiles, seemed to have two goals in mind when he hired architect George D. Mason in the 1910s to design a home for him and his wife, Bertha: to entertain and to impress.

His 12,000-square-foot house, built in an Italian Renaissance style in 1918 in what is now Detroit's Arden Park-East Boston Historic District, certainly does both.
