Abandoned Ernie D's Campus Ballroom in Detroit

Located at 4120 Fenkell , just off of Livernois in Detroit. Thanks to Mikem at detroityes.com for the address and the fact that this building was built between 1926 and 1928. I read it was a popular meeting place in 1945. Funkadelic played a gig here in 1970. It is located near the U of D Mercy - McNichols Campus. I am still gathering additional information. Ernie D ( Frantic Ernie Durham ) - a popular Radio Disc Jockey here in Detroit, used to run events here on the top floor and owned a record store on the first floor.
