    Fruitport Michigan History Pomona Pavilion

    Another attraction in Pomona Park was the Fruitport Pavilion. From around the turn of the century until the 50’s, it was a destination for Big Bands and dancing. Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington and Doris Day played there. Several hundred people would pack the hall. The pavilion burned down in 1963.

    The pavilion was built by the Grand Rapids, Grand Haven and Muskegon Railroad Company as an attraction.

    Re: Fruitport Michigan History Pomona Pavilion

    I love this post. Where did you find those pictures at? I live right by Pomona park and I've always been interested in the history of it. I've been doing loads of research lately and I'm amazed at how much I didn't know about a place that I've spent so much time at. I'm wanting to do some detecting here but I have yet to ask permission. If you have any other pictures I'd LOVE to see them. I found this one on Ebay. It's on the front of an old postcard.
