HISTORIC PLAQUE PROJECT 
For Your Home! For Your Business!
  
 
As a service to our members, the Elk Rapids Area Historical Society  accepts applications for cast aluminum historic plaques. 
    
All buildings built before 1935 are eligible for a plaque. This is a project
to help the Society document the historic buildings in the Elk Rapids area and for visitors and local residents to know how old each building is. The approved application of eligible structures is kept on file in the Elk Rapids  Historical Museum for use regarding historical research of the local community. 
The current focus is now on old churches, commercial buildings and other historic residenial homes in the area. 
 
The cost of the plaque and research is $100. The majority of this payment covers the cost of producing the plaque. Please pay when submitting your application.  If you are not yet a member, please fill out a membership form and include payment with your application form.
 
A downloadable Historic Plaque and Membership Application are available below. There is also a "help guide" to assist tracing the history of your structure.
