The Ralph Harmon Booth House was awarded a plaque from the Grosse Pointe Historical Society in 1987. The 22-room home was designed by Marcus Burrows in 1924 in a style that combined both Tudor and Jacobean influences.

Mr. Booth served as president of Booth Newspapers, as the United States Minister to Denmark and is recognized as a major philanthropist and donor to the Detroit Institue of Arts.

The Grosse Pointe Historical Society will present plaques to three architecturally significant properties at 7:30 p.m. May 13 at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. The program is free. A reception follows the presentations. For more information, email or call (313) 884-7010.
