North Park Pavilion
North Park Pavilion, after the fire. Partially destroyed by fire, afterward torn down (Grand Rapids Herald, Mar. 31, 1930). View from the damaged end shows bare wooden framework on the upper level and rubble on the roof of the wraparound veranda, although no obvious charring. The far end appears undamaged. The building itself is a sprawling brick 2-story structure, with a 3rd story peak at the far end. Two tower style dormers stand above the front entrance on the 3rd level, and to the left of them is a larger tower with arched openings. On the 2nd level above the entrance is a room or additional porch with 5 arches. A single rail fence lines the drive leading up to the pavilion.
