Kearsley Street

Kearsley Street

Kearsley Street was home to many automotive leaders through the early decades of the 20th Century. The street was lined with their large Victorian homes, like Whaley House you see here. Dallas Dort and Charles Mott built large country estates on the street's east end. Kearsley Street lost some of its luster in the late 1920s as Flint's wealthy auto barons instead began building in the Woodcroft Estates neighborhood off of Miller Road on the west side of the city.

David Buick, Walter Chrysler, Josiah Dallas Dort, Charles Stewart Mott, and James Whiting all had homes on Kearsley Street.
