Is the Pavilion on the National Register of Historic Places?

Detroit Lakes City Park was added to the Register of Historic Places in 2008.  Serving as a recreational destination for over 100 years, City Park is considered a property that is associated with events and activities that have made a significant contribution to our history.  As part of the historic designation, various physical resources of the park were documented as either “contributing” or “noncontributing” to the historical significance of the park.  The Pavilion was designated as a “noncontributing” structure.  Conversely, the bathhouse was designated as “contributing”.  Therefore, the Pavilion, itself, is not a historical structure but the overall City Park carries that designation.  Plans to modify the park will require review by the Minnesota State Historical Preservation Office.
