Many local baby boomers who grew up in the 1950s and '60s fondly recall some fun nights at the Balmoral Pavilion on the southeast side of Otter Tail Lake.


The late Ed and Bette Prescher owned the Balmoral Pavilion, one of the most famous dance halls in west central Minnesota. They owned Balmoral from 1948 to 1972.
