For Sale: DLBA Markets Church in Indian Village

The Detroit Land Bank Authority is selling a church in historic Indian Village. At the corner of Seminole and Kercheval, the church was first built in 1888 to house a Lutheran congregation. Damaged by fire in 1940, and rebuilt in 1949, it was most recently a Baptist house of worship.
Now owned by the DLBA, the long-vacant 1815 Seminole is for sale for $294,900. The building features stunning stained-glass windows, a vaulted wood-beam ceiling, and beautifully carved pews. There is a deed restriction that prohibits the sale of alcohol, and it is currently zoned R1 residential. The sale is open to homeowners, investors, and developers. Offers must demonstrate proof of funds for both the purchase and renovation of the existing structure. Highest and best offers are due September 20th, 2019.
Stop by and tour the property during a community open house, Saturday, August 31st, 2019, from noon to 2 pm.
