Ludington House Nominated for the National Register of Historic Places

Posted: Updated:

A part of many northern Michigan summers may soon be recognized nationally as a historic site.

The state nominated the Lake Michigan Beach House at Ludington State Park as one of 5 sites around the state to be included on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Civilian Conservation Corps Camp in Ludington built the beach house in 1935, using bricks salvaged from an old salt plant.

It's unlike any other structure at state parks in Michigan, and the Lake Michigan Beach House is the largest and most intact of the C.C.C. built structures in the park.

The State Historic Preservation Review Board considers nominations to the National Historic Register 3 times a year.
