Best Detroit History Blog 

Detroit Urbanism

detroiturbanism.blogspot.com

Blogger Paul Sewick wrote the fascinating Corktown History blog while he lived in Corktown from 2005 to 2015, showing off his knack for turning questions about Corktown's history into satisfying and readable accounts of what happened when. When Sewick moved to Farmington Hills last year, he wanted to expand the scope of his writing, hence Detroit Urbanism, a blog he says is "just a broader view of the same things that happened in Corktown, how Detroit set its shape, basically: anything that had to do with shaping the map of the region." His scholarship has already produced blogs about lost Native American trails, burial mounds, and Judge Woodward's fanciful plan for Detroit.
