There are tiny entrances to fairy houses all around Ann Arbor, but they are so small, you may not even notice them. The miniature carpenter behind the crafting of these mystical doorways is the artist Jonathon B. Right. At first he made the doors for his fairy-loving daughters, placing them at various places in their home. But then, numerous door sightings began to emerge one-by-one in Ann Arbor, and Urban Fairies was born. The doors are unique to each location, and are expertly crafted. Some leave gifts for the fairies when they’re not home, and on rare occasions, you can catch the little fairies coming out of the doorway.
Today there are nine known Fairy Doors. You can spot them at the following locations:
The Michigan Theater (603 Liberty St.)
Ann Arbor District Library (343 S. Fifth Ave.)
The Ark (316 S. Main St.)
Sweetwaters Coffee and Tea (123 W. Washington St.)
Peaceable Kingdom (210 S. Main St.)
Found Gallery (407 N 5th Ave.)
Mott Children’s Hospital (1540 E. Hospital Dr.)
Nicola’s Books (2513 Jackson Rd.)
There is even a Goblin door somewhere in town, but the location is unknown, so keep your eyes peeled!
