Leonard Augustus Young

M, b. 31 January 1877, d. October 1964
     Leonard Augustus Young was born on 31 January 1877 at Chicago, Cook Co., IL. He was the son of James Young and Evelyn Bennett. Leonard Augustus Young began military service in 1900 Spanish-American War, U.S. Army, Company F., 5th Regiment, Cavalry, private (1900.) He married Ola Butcher, daughter of Joseph Milton Butcher and Lydia Ann Munson, on 4 July 1907 at Lake Co., IN. Leonard Augustus Young died in October 1964 at Dade Co., FL, at age 87 HISTORY OF MOTOWN MANSION

The house at 918 West Boston Boulevard, also known as the "Motown Mansion", is located in the Boston Edison neighborhood of Detroit. The mansion is most famous for being owned by Berry Gordy, Jr. of Motown Records between 1967 and 2002.
The "Motown Mansion" (aka the "Berry Gordy Mansion" or the "Gordy Manor") was built in 1917 by Nels Mitchelson, a Danish immigrant who arrived in the United States in 1866 and established several successful lumber and timber companies in Michigan. Constructed in an Italian Renaissance Revival style, the original mansion was approximately 8.500 square feet, with nine bedrooms, five full baths, four fireplaces, and a carriage house large enough to accommodate five cars and house two apartments above it.
In 1925 Leonard Augustus Young purchased the house from the Mitchelson family. Young significantly renovated the house and property. He added ornate carved marble mantelpieces to the fireplaces, and installed custom light fixtures, and bronze doors in each room. Young upgraded the house with state of the art technology, installing a theater to screen the latest movies from MGM studios, a company in which he was also an investor. The most impressive addition to the two acre estate, was a 4,500 square foot athletic building. The facility includes an Olympic-size swimming pool, bowling alley, gymnasium and billiards room.
Pablo Davis, a nationally recognized artist who worked with Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Pablo Picasso, purchased the property in 1964. Davis currently has works on display at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Upon purchasing the property, Davis split the property into two parcels. Davis owned and lived in the main house while Max Gozesky owned and lived in the athletic building.
The property's most famous resident, Berry Gordy Jr., bought both parcels in 1969, reuniting the estate. Gordy, Jr.'s acquisition of the property happened only ten years after he borrowed $800 to form Motown Records. His ability to purchase this impressive property within the span of a decade attests to the meteoric rise in popularity and bankability of Motown music and those running the operations. Gordy, Jr. hosted many Motown stars at his home for parties and private concerts.
In the 1970s, Motown Records moved the majority of their operations to Los Angeles, but Gordy, Jr. still retained ownership of his Detroit residence. In 2002, after being vacant for almost 20 years, Mr. Gordy sold the residence to corporate tax attorney Cynthia F. Reaves. Ms. Reaves is a nationally known tax attorney who has written several books on tax law and is a national speaker on exempt organization law. Ms. Reaves is a former advisor to President Bill Clinton, President Jimmy Carter and Governor Doug Wilder (Dem. VA.) Over a period of two years, Ms. Reaves restored the Motown Mansion. In 2006, Ms. Reaves received the State of Michigan Historic Preservation award from the Governor of the State of Michigan for the "meticulous" and substantial restoration of the Motown Mansion, including a major restoration of the athletic building. Ms. Reaves is the only individual to be granted such an award which is usually reserved for architectural and engineering firms and local governmental units. As part of the restoration, Ms. Reaves re-acquired all of the original lighting fixtures for the residence and restored the ornate decorative plaster throughout the property. In 2010, the home was temporarily placed on the market, but was taken off of the market soon thereafter, leaving Ms. Reaves as the current owner of the property.
During her ownership, Ms. Reaves restored the home and allowed it to reclaim its status as one of the residential "jewels" of the City of Detroit. She often hosts fund raisers for charities and political candidates adding to the vibrancy of the neighborhood and enhancing the reputation of the City of Detroit. During her ownership, she has held fund raisers for major Democratic candidates, and hosted numerous "political thought leaders," including President Barack Obama, Senator Debbie Stabenaw, Congressman John Dingel, Senator Barbara Mikulski (Dem., MD), Senator Jeanne Shaheen (Dem. NH), Senator Kay Hagen (Dem. NC), and Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm among others. In the entertainment industry, the Motown Mansion has welcomed many Motown records performers, Robert Richie (aka Kid Rock), jazz artist, Kem, movie producer and actor, Johnny Knoxville, and Geena Davis among others. Ms. Reaves has had a hand in raising millions of dollars for local and national charities, including the United Way, Big Sisters/Big Brothers, PAL, the White House Project and other notable organizations.
The "Motown Mansion" on 918 West Boston Boulevard been owned by self-made millionaires, artists and other influential individuals since its construction. The house's most famous connection is with Motown founder, Berry Gordy, Jr. and the world renowned artists and musicians that visited the home and lived within its walls. Parties and meetings here determined career trajectories for artists and also determined in what directions the company and the genre went. The mansion still looms large in the popular imagination as the "Motown Mansion" and it is an important site for music fans, archaeologists and historians in telling the history of Motown music in the city. Thanks to the Boston Edison neighborhood's designation as a National Historic Site, and the dedication of all of the former owners, including Berry Gordy and Cynthia F. Reaves, the house retains its original architecture and design as it did when it was originally built by Nels Michelson in 1917, ensuring that each successive generation of fans will be able to recognize it and to feel close to history.
