LANSING – It stood through the Great Depression, it stood through World War II, and now the 15-time winner of the “best yacht club in America” stands to be recognized. The Grosse Pointe Yacht Club was recently named to the National Register of Historic Places, 101 years after the club’s inception. Located just outside of Detroit in Grosse Pointe Shores on Lake St. Clair, the club hosts about 265 boats and has 800 members. The site’s historic designation is exciting for the club, both as a source of pride and for the help it gives to preserve the buildings, said General Manager Tom Trainor.
