Unique canal living in Jefferson-Chalmers.

Tucked away in one of Detroit’s most private neighborhoods, both Harbor Island and Klenk Islands offer a unique way of life. The quiet canal communities run the length of the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood and offer everything from quaint ranch houses to stunning turn-of-the-century brick tudors. The area also has a fascinating history as a smuggling route for bootleggers bringing liquor back from Canada during Prohibition. Today, the well-kept islands are great for kayaking; but also attract sailors, boat enthusiasts, anglers and outdoorsmen alike.
