Edgar Durfee and the Detroit Post of the Grand Army of the Republic
The Detroit Post of the Grand Army of the Republic hired architect Julius Hess to design a building on a narrow triangular lot bound by Grand River, Cass and Adams in Detroit. The Richardson Romanesque style building was popular during the end of the 19th century. Edger Durfee, who is now buried in the Franklin Cemetery, was the first Post Commander of this Post. The building is still standing.
