Mackenzie High School
50's and 60's Picnic

Welcome to our Mackenzie Picnic Website

Our 2021 picnic date is Wednesday, July 28 from noon-6pm.  Once again we are at the Nankin Mills picnic area (across from Nankin Mill) in Hines Park, Westland, Michigan.  Please "save the date".

In the meantime, I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this pandemic.  We are hoping to see you at our annual picnic this summer 2021.

If you have any questions or need more information, just click the link "Contact Us" at the left-hand side of this page.

Re the After 50 Luncheon for this year, we're strongly considering a re-start of the luncheon, but we're essentially 'on hold' until at least early June because of the Michigan pandemic regulations regarding event attendance.

Thanks to Roger Fraser for the following: 

Detroit is going to break ground at the old Tappan School location on Elmhurst and the Jeffries  expressway. In our days it was American and Elmhurst. The school will be dedicated for teaching skilled trades for Millwrights and Carpenters apprenticeships.

Inside an 1895 Queen Anne-style home on Cass, Wayne State University founder David Mackenzie (our school's namesake) was known for entertaining guests and dignitaries in his oak-paneled library, wowing them with his fluency in several languages and his ability to read and write Sanskrit.

The Mackenzie house is one of the oldest and most iconic buildings on Wayne State's campus. It's part of a National Historic District, established in the 1970s, that also includes Wayne State's first building, the first Detroit Central High School.

Designed by Malcomson & Higginbotham, it was built in 1895 by W.H. Hollands and Sons. Originally the home of Frank Blackman, a banker, Mackenzie purchased it in 1906.

The former principal of Detroit Central High School is credited with founding Wayne State after he noticed dozens of his graduates couldn't afford to attend college. So he, along with school faculty, proposed creating a junior college as part of the high school, according to a report from the Detroit City Council historic designation advisory board.

In 1923, state lawmakers voted to give the college full “collegiate rank,” and it became the College of the City of Detroit. It was the start of what's now Wayne State

The red brick house where Mackenzie lived for about 20 years until his death in 1926 spans two and a half stories. It features a large porch, overhanging gables and a threequarter round turret on the southeast corner.
