Historic House Plaques Now Available 50% Discount to first 20 applicants  

Elk Rapids home and business owners once again can see their structure historically recognized. The Elk Rapids Area Historical Society is offering a custom-made plaque to members owning a building more than 50 years old. Thanks to a grant, the usual cost of $150 for the plaque is being reduced by 50% to $75.

Any commercial or residential structure built before 1973 is encouraged to apply. Each plaque is hand-made by Scott Nelles, a local artist, in his Elk Rapids foundry. The heavy cast aluminum oval features the circa build date and statement of historic recognition. The Museum will assist with the research required to determine your structure’s build date.

We are looking for 20 members who would like to take advantage of this discounted offer. To apply for a plaque, please leave a message on our office phone 231-264-5692.
