The Manoogian Mansion is the official residence of the mayor of Detroit, Michigan. It is located at 9240 Dwight Street in the Berry Subdivision Historic District, on the city’s east side, backing up to the Detroit River. It was built in 1928 for $300,000 but the owner lost the home during the Great Depression. Alex Manoogian, founder of the Masco Company, purchased the home in 1939. In 1966, the Manoogians donated the mansion to the City of Detroit. It was the Armenian immigrant’s way to thank his adopted hometown, and part of his philanthropy.
