The Arthur M. Parker House (also known as the Parker House) is a historic house located at 8115 East Jefferson Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, directly adjacent to the Frederick K. Stearns House.

Description and history[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] 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]

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

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 9, 1985.[1]
