Bel Rae Ballroom
Built and operated by Elhart Ebel from 1964 to 1971.
Sold to the city on June 30, 1996.
The Bel Rae Ballroom was one of the most popular dance locations in Minnesota.
The Mounds View City Council couldn't decide on whether to spend $3 million to turn the old Bel Rae Ballroom into a community center, so city residents voted on the matter. The voters approved it. Though it's now a community center, it is still referred to as the Bel Rae Ballroom.
