Location Name:  Schroeder Paint and Glass Company (Detroit, Michigan)

Location Type:  Abandoned Site (Factory)

Year Completed:  1897

Architect(s):  ?

History:  

In 1897, John Schroeder and James H. O’Donnell formed a partnership and founded Schroeder Paint and Glass Company. The factory supplied paint and glass to the automotive industry while in operation. Long abandoned, the empty factory has fallen victim to scrappers and vandals. While little remains of the building, the most notable part of any visit to Schroeder is the abundance of graffiti. Open to the elements and anyone or thing else that passes by, Schroeder has been an easy place to spray some paint, dump some trash or just get into mischief in general. It is very unlikely that a use will be found for this site, but any real signs of demolition have yet to surface.
