For more than 40 years, the Junior League of Detroit has been conducting its biennial Designers’ Show House fundraisers at homes in the Grosse Pointes. That’s about to change.
The JLD’s 2018 Designers’ Show House — its 22nd house since this fundraiser started in 1976 — will take place at the historic Charles T. Fisher mansion in Detroit’s Boston-Edison District. The largest home in the district, the three-story English Tudor is just under 18,000 square feet and has 14 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a gymnasium, a pub, a private chapel, a carriage house and a Prohibition-era liquor vault.
It was purchased by author, actor and philanthropist Hill Harper, who’s now starring on the hit TV drama “The Good Doctor,” and who also starred on “CSI: NY,” the Showtime drama “Homeland” and HLN’s “How It Really Happened with Hill Harper.”
