Grosse Pointe Historical Society
Since 1986, the Society has been annually awarding historic plaques to Grosse Pointe
landmarks to recognize their historical or architectural value to the community, to encourage
their continued preservation, or to recognize the value of adaptive reuse.
The bronze plaques, designed by J. William Gorski, bear the image of the Society's logo, a
French windmill that stood on the shores of Lake St. Clair in the 1700's. They are 8 inches in
diameter and weigh five pounds.
If you would like to submit your property for consideration for a Grosse Pointe Historical
Society plaque, please mail a one page background information sheet describing the property
along with a current photo and a contact name, address and phone number to us at:
