DeHoCo Silos at the corner of Ridge and 5 Mile Roads

27 Jun

Corner of 5 Mile & Ridge Road. Built in 1920. This is one of the most visible landmarks that stands at the North West edge of Plymouth. It’s nickname is “DeHoCo” which stands for the Detroit House of Corrections. This was actually part of a working prison farm. A wood structure once adorned the front of these silos. This was used until 1931 when the prison was built down the street.

UPDATE: As of Friday, August 30th, 2019 this structure has been demolished and is no longer standing.
