I just came across this small tid bit of Durant information while surfing the web. It seems as though the Genesse County Historical Society has received a grant of $10,000 to restore the Durant-Dort Headquarters foyer to it's original condition. There is also mention of various other monies being awarded to other automobile heritage sites. Motor Cities Ntaional Heritage Area web site (www.experienceeverythingautomotive.org) and look under 2005 Grants Program Awards
We were there on the first Durant meet that was held in Dearborn in 1981. The building was undergoing restoration at that time, and we were there for the official opening and registration of the building as a historical site.
We were there again in 2000 at the Annual meeting held in Flint and organized by Bob Smith. A real great weekend.
Glad to hear that this great building is being looked after.
