10 Michigan sites have been added to the National Register of Historic Places



The Michigan State Historic Preservation Office said on Wednesday that 10 sites from across the state have been added to the National Register of Historic Places, an official list of historic places in the U.S. deemed worthy of preservation. 

“Preserving Michigan’s historic resources enriches communities by protecting tangible connections to our past,” said Wayne Workman, acting-executive director of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, in a statement Wednesday. “Earning a spot on this list promotes economic development through tourism and creates a new source for educational opportunities.”

The new Michigan sites added, include:
  • Army Lodge No. 335 Temple-Spiritual Israel and Its Army Temple (Detroit)
  • Grosse Pointe Yacht Club (Grosse Pointe Shores)
  • Wing-Allore House (Monroe)
  • Saginaw County Fairgrounds Main Gate (Saginaw County)

  • Mount Pleasant Downtown Historic District (Mount Pleasant)
  • Peoples National Bank Building (Jackson)
  • Morgan West Wheatland Cemetery (Mecosta County)
  • William A. and Catherine Cartier House (Ludington)
Michigan has over 1,600 sites on the register, according to the state.
