The John Harvey House is a home located at 97 Winder Street in
Detroit, Michigan. It is now a bed and breakfast, operating under the name The Inn at 97 Winder.
John Harvey was a successful pharmacist in Detroit, but he is best known for his philanthropy in educating and feeding the city's poor children and orphans, beginning in the period just after the
American Civil Warand continuing into the early twentieth century. [http://www.mcgi.state.mi.us/hso/sites/15679.htm John Harvey House] from the state of Michigan] Harvet established Detroit's Industrial school and later the Sabbath Mission School to educate indigent children.
John Harvey employed John V. Smith to design this house, located in what now is Detroit's Brush Park. John Harvey died in 1905, but his widow lived in the house into the 1920s.

In 1938, the structure was converted into a rooming house; some of the larger rooms were partitioned.
The John Harvey House is constructed of red brick atop an ashlar foundation with a mansard roof. The facade features a center entrance and wooden brackets supporting the sills of the multi-storied towers and window bays. The house has 11,000 square feet, eight marble fireplaces, and three-story staircase.
The current owners purchased the John Harvey House in 1986, renovated the structure, and, in 2005, opened it as a 10-room guesthouse.
