The estate “Wabeek,” once belonged to James S. Couzens who was the Mayor of Detroit between 1919 and 1922, and a United States Senator from 1922 until 1936. He used Wabeek as his summer residence until 1924, when he commissioned the great Albert Kahn to design his new home. Kahn designed a grand estate for James S. Couzens, and spared nothing on construction or the finer details. It took several years to complete. Each fireplace has a different type of marble imported from all over the world, and intricate woodworking by the hands of master cabinetmakers from Germany and Switzerland. This magnificent estate still stands today within the boundaries of our beautiful Wabeek North neighborhood.
