Big Pavilion Ballroom
Saugatuck, Michigan

Built: July 1909
Dance floor: 6,600 square feet
The ballroom was made of wood and tar, had a red, rounded roof, a 25-foot promenade with refreshment stands around the edge, and an outdoor movie theater.
When the ballroom was first built, there was no electricity in Saugatuck, so a generator was used to power thousands of colored lights outlining the curved roof and towers outside and lining the arches in the ballroom.
Destroyed by fire on May 6, 1960.
