I remember from my last stint at Wayne State, walking around somewhere and seeing an old abandoned two or three story house almost completely encased by climbing roses. has anyone else ever seen the building, or was i slipped something before I went for a walk?

More details please! WSU's a pretty hefty campus.

This was quite awhile ago, mid 90s. May have been at an extension center they had east of the main campus. I just remember walking by it when it was in bloom, then trying to find it (with my camera) a few days later. i saw the pic of the Van Husan house, it wasn't that large, but same coverage of foliage. looked like a smallish victorian.

Building I thought of first was the old piano guy's repair shop on the corner of 2nd and Hancock, but I don't think those were roses creeping all over that building.
I used to jog all over that campus in the late eighties and early nineties...and I don't have a mental image of a rose-covered house.

great idea for a conceptual art/gardening project though!

Could it be one of the two Commercial Zoned houses on Forest between Cass and Woodward on the North Side...one of the houses is pale Yellow now, don't know if it ever use to be, but i seem to recall seeing climbing Rose Bushes on it's side.

Didn't the former 1876 Fiona's Tea House (razed recently for the permanent MGM Grand Casino) have a lot of rose bushes or perhaps Ivy climbing the walls of the house? Of course, that was some distance from Wayne State.
