A piece of Detroit history and one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in the United States sustained some damage thanks to Detroit’s winds on Wednesday.

The top of the steeple at Fort Street Presbyterian Church in Detroit was bent due the winds that Detroit’s City Airport registered at 61 miles per hour at one point.

Fort Street Presbyterian was built in 1855 and you can see the damage from a few blocks away if you look from Griswold and Fort Street, where we first noticed it.
