It's been a great summer!

August garage sale, landscaping contest and more...

Looks like the heat wave finally broke! This summer has been a hot one for the record books – hopefully your garden and lawn survived the blazing sun (and lack of rain) day after day.

Please note: our September 13 general meeting with Mayor Mike Duggan will be held at St. Matthew Catholic Church, 6021 Whittier (at Harper) due to St. Clair’s annual Book Sale.

In the month of August we had plenty of outstanding events going on… our annual garage sale was blessed with great weather and a solid showing of village treasures and finds. Special thanks to Kathy Roddie and her team of volunteers who made the weekend a success.

The annual EEV Landscape Contest was held with many new properties being recognized this year. As always, we have so many beautiful properties in EEV – thanks to our residents who work so diligently making their homes a showplace. If you would like to help with next year’s event, Read more -> 

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.
