SubjectBoardman River Dams
Commonwealth Cultural Resources Group, Inc. (CCRG) was contracted by Environmental Consulting & Technology, Inc, (ECT) to undertake the evaluation and documentation of four dams and their associated power houses on the Boardman River as requested by the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). The dams include the sites at Brown Bridge (1921- 22), Boardman River (1930-31), Sabin (1906-07), and Union Street (1867), all within Grand Traverse County, Michigan. As a result of archive and literature review and field survey conducted in March 2008, it is CCRG’s finding that the Boardman River dams and power houses (Brown Bridge, Boardman River, Sabin, and Union Street) lack the required level of integrity, design, materials, or association required under the established National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) Criteria for Evaluation and, therefore, would not be considered eligible for inclusion on the NRHP.
