It lies just north of the City of Detroit and is about one and a half square miles in size. The Shores is the smallest of the five Grosse Pointe communities and the only one to be zoned for single family dwellings only. It is still a small community, currently with approximately 1100 households, about 3000 residents. Grosse Pointe Shores is proud to be the home community of the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, which is tax exempt, and the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, the Shores’ only commercial property.

The terms “Grosse Pointe” or “the Pointes” are ordinarily used to refer to the entire area, referencing all five individual communities, with a total population of about 46,000. The Grosse Pointes altogether are 10.4 square miles, bordered by Detroit on the south and west, Lake St. Clair on the east and south, Harper Woods on the west of some portions, and St. Clair Shores on the north. The cities are in eastern Wayne County. The Pointes begin six miles (10 km) northeast of downtown Detroit and extend several miles northeastward, in a narrow swath of land, to the edge of Wayne County. The name “Grosse Pointe” derives from the size of the area, and its projection into Lake St. Clair. Learn more about Grosse Pointe…
