Halo Burger and Vernor’s Mural
800 South Saginaw Street
Architect: Unknown, 1929. Mural Artists: John Gonsowski and Keith Martin, 1932
Originally built as a Vernor’s “Soda Pop Shop,” Halo Burger’s stucco exterior, red tile insets, and roof are typical of Mission Style architecture. The parking lot was once the Vernor’s Gardens outdoor dining area. The Vernor’s mural on the wall facing the building was completed in 1932 and depicts the characteristic Vernor’s gnomes making their ginger ale and preserving it in wooden barrels, working against a backdrop of castles.
