Info:

In 1927, Lawrence Fisher, founder of Fisher Body and Cadillac, employed more than 200 European craftsmen to build his lavish home on the Detroit River. It was modeled after William Randolph Hearst’s San Simeon castle with a Mission-style exterior, Italian marble fireplaces, and 24-karat gold-leaf ceilings. The mansion was purchased by Henry Ford’s grandson in 1975 and subsequently donated to the Hare Krishna religion. The home now operates as a cultural center that offers tours, a fascinating collection of Asian and Indian art.
