President's message:

Late summer greeting!


The month of July just seemed to fly by, and now we have so many events for the month of August to keep you entertained and informed.

We have another Detroit Land Bank Home Tour on Sunday, August 3. The event will be held from 1-5 p.m. The auction this time focuses on the last of the original Detroit Land Bank properties and new properties just given to the land bank. We are excited to have this opportunity again to fill homes with homeowners. Please let us know if you would like to help on the day of the event by emailing code@eastenglishvillage. org. Please register at 4240 Kensington to tour the next 13 properties on Sunday, August 3.

The next event is our Garden Club's annual garden tour. Please see Page 5 regarding times and gardens to view. Thanks to all the gardeners again this year. On August 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EEVA will host the annual Village garage sale. This year we have an added sale site. Please see the information on the back

About East
English Village


With many amenities - quick access to downtown Detroit and neighboring cities, good shopping choices, public/private schools and an active, engaged community – the neighborhood is an excellent choice for families and individual homeowners. The neighborhood association hosts activities including contests, home tours, garden club, annual garage sale and a holiday party. Established residents and new neighbors meet monthly to discuss issues, successes and general neighborhood information. The mutual support of neighbors and feeling of community is the heart of our neighborhood.


East English Village prides itself on the diversity of our community. We are one of the most racially mixed neighborhoods in the City of Detroit. Civil servants, blue collar workers, retirees and professionals from different ethnic groups, religions and sexual orientations have all found a welcome place here.

Unique architecture

First developed in 1913, most of the distinctive brick homes of East English Village were built in the early 1930s through 1950. The solid architecture and high quality materials used in the homes continues to attract residents who value the charm and character of older homes.
