The Arthur M. Parker House is located at 8115 East Jefferson Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, directly adjacent to the Frederick K. Stearns House. It is also known as the Parker House. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]

Description[edit]

The Arthur M. Parker House is a two-and-one-half-story building, faced with brick on the first story and stucco and half-timbering above.[2] The house has a medieval character reinforced by irregular bays, though more restrained than the next-door Frederick K. Stearns House.[2]

Significance[edit]

The Arthur M. Parker House is significant for its neo-medieval design. The house was designed for Arthur M. Parker, secretary-treasurer of the Detroit Boiler Company.[2]

Current use[edit]

As of 2008, the house is used as the headquarters of the Southeast Michigan Synod - Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
