Clarence M. Burton, in his history on the city of Detroit, attributes the idea of an aquarium to Rep. David E. Heineman, who had visited Naples, Italy, and studied that city’s Anton Dorhn Aquarium. Heineman, who had earlier been the city’s chief assistant attorney, introduced a bill in the Legislature to provide funding for the conservatory and aquarium. The act authorized that $150,000 in bonds be issued (about $3.7 million today) was passed on May 26, 1899. It just hinged on a vote of the people, which gave its support. The bonds were issued March 1, 1900, and the money was placed in the city treasury for building the two landmarks.The Beaux Arts-style building’s price tag: $165,000 (about $4.06 million today). At the time of its opening, the aquarium was among the six largest in the world. Its high-tech equipment allowed for the keeping of both seawater and fresh-water marine life and the keeping of the right water temperatures in the tanks. The water was recycled through the tanks because, it was said, that fish survive better in water they’ve been in before. Originally, a 8,531-gallon center tank with a railing around it occupied the center of the building. It was topped off with filtered water that snaked through 5 miles of pipes.The firm of Nettleton & Kahn drew up the plans for the buildings, but George Nettleton died before work began. Albert Kahn paired up with his old boss, legendary Detroit architect George D. Mason, to form a new firm: Mason & Kahn. The venture was so shortlived, however, that their partnership would be done before the aquarium and conservatory were.In 1986, a proposal was floated to demolish the Ford Auditorium and build a new aquarium along the riverfront. This plan was shelved because of money issues, but talk of building a new super aquarium would surface later.
