Tidbits of Interest
Once a quiet, tree-lined residential community, the City of Utica now serves as a commercial mecca for the northern Detroit metropolitan communities. The Utica Historical District features elegant, lovingly restored 19th century homes that are located just a few blocks from the downtown area. Fine examples of Italian architecture grace many of the downtown structures, which are already the focal point of reno-vations as the city accommodates continued growth and expansion. As the population climbs, an extremely active Historical District Commis-sion is in place to guarantee that future growth will be balanced by preservation of the past.
