Notes: 
c. 1960; the Henry and Edsel Ford Auditorium was built in 1955 and opened in 1956; designed by the firm Odell, Hewlett and Luckenbach, it was located at the base of Auditorium Drive; it was home to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for 33 years and also housed other musical and cultural activities; while it had a state-of-the-art recording system when it opened, the DSO eventually returned to its original home, Orchestra Hall, in 1989 because the poor acoustics could not be improved; thereafter, the hall had little use and was eventually demolished in July 2011 as part of Detroit's waterfront redesign plans.
