Flint Postcards: Hotel Dresden at Night


Flinn's Journal provides some background info: This hotel was later called the Milner and finally the Adams before it was destroyed by fire in 1963.

  1. my gramma used to get her hair done in the basement here. We used to explore the upper floors when we could sneak up there. Remember watching it burn down from our back porch on the upstairs floor before the trees got too tall.

  2. Little help here... anyone know where this hotel was? I've never heard of it before. Is the building still around?

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
