Walled Lake Casino
Where: South end of Walled Lake
The casino dance hall was built near the intersection of S. Lake Drive and 13 Mile Road. The Casino was originally constructed in 1917. It was destroyed by fire in 1922 and was immediately rebuilt. It was destroyed again by fire in 1965. The casino hosted numerous musical groups including Benny Goodman, The Dorsey Brothers, Glenn Miller and Guy Lombardo. It contained a 120' x 140' hardwood dance floor. The ceiling was decorated with specially-designed wooden and silk stars that were hand-painted and lit to create the effect of the night sky. The casino was the hub of Walled Lake Recreation activity.
