The Gulfport Casino Ballroom has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced yesterday that several Florida properties, including the Gulfport Casino, have been recently listed in the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places.
"I am pleased to announce the listing of these historic Florida resources on the National Register of Historic Places," said Secretary of State Ken Detzner. "These properties represent the broad spectrum of Florida life and history, having served as homes and places of business, worship, recreation, tourism, or as municipal centers."
Located only a few steps away from the white sand beaches of Gulfport, Florida, the 10,000 square foot Gulfport Casino Ballroom overlooking the Boca Ciega Bay provides a venue for a variety of activities ranging from dances, concerts, fundraisers, corporate events, seminars, trade shows, private parties, wedding receptions and community events. The facility can accommodate events for activities for 50 - 700 with a dining capacity of 450.
The National Register of Historic Places contains a wide range of historic property types, reflecting the diversity of the nation's history and culture. Buildings, structures, and sites; groups of buildings, structures or sites forming historic districts; landscapes; and individual objects are all included in the Register if they meet the criteria specified in the National Register's Criteria for Evaluation (36 CFR 60.4). Such properties reflect many kinds of significance in architecture, history, archeology, engineering, and culture.
