The Grande Ballroom – National Register of Historic Places – Final Phase

We received letters this week confirming the nomination review of the Grande Ballroom to the National Register of Historic Places in Washington D.C. !

“This  project is in its final phase which consists of gathering input, from the public and interested parties, at the local and state level before the submission to the National Park Service for official listing on the National Register of Historic Places.”

The 62 page Grande Ballroom National Register Nomination Form can be accessed online at:

As we present the Ballroom in Lansing in Detroit, there is opportunity for public support and comment, which means YOU!

Per the process, there are 3 main ways you can comment on the nomination and the significance of the Grande Ballroom, up to and including the two review board meetings:

1 – By E-mail:  e-mail your comments of support directly to both; and

2 – By  Snail-mail: Letters of support or opposition can be sent to the HDAB and/or the SHPO office and will then become part of the public record.
