“After the fire of 1805, Judge Augustus B. Woodward was appointed to lay out a new plan for the streets, squares and lots of Detroit. It is from here at Judge Woodward’s survey point in the center of Campus Martius that the city of Detroit’s street system originated. This spot is Detroit’s point of origin.”
