Jefferson Hall was an apartment building located at 1404 East Jefferson Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985,[1] but subsequently demolished.

Description[edit]

Jefferson Hall was a four-story red brick apartment building built in the "garden court" style, where apartments are arranged in a U-shape around a central courtyard.[2] This arrangement gave tenants more window space and a courtyard view. The building was trimmed with stone.[2] The main lobby was located in the center of the U, and two commercial stores flanked the entryway. Projecting bay windows were located above, on the second through fourth floors.[2]
