Located at the very center of Campus Martius Park
, in Downtown Detroit, is the Point of Origin medallion. The story goes that way back in 1805, when Judge Woodward was commissioned to plan the city after the great fire, he started the survey from this very spot. A medallion marking this momentous new beginning was installed here, where it still represents Detroit's indomitable spirit.
