Historic Detroit

Every building in Detroit has a story — we're here to share it

Monnier Elementary School

South elevation, with kindergarten bay window visible on the right side.

North elevation viewed from the school's asphalt track. The blank facade on the right of the image is where a 1973 addition once connected to the original building. The addition was demolished in 1991 or 92, according to Sanborn maps.

Monnier's original building included 28 rooms and a large gym/auditorium.

The main school entrance, as well as the entrance to the gym/auditorium, is located on a single-loaded corridor which extends toward Ward St. on the west side of the building.
