Denver Civic Center may become National Historic Landmark | News
DENVER – Denver Civic Center may join the ranks of historic sites such as the Empire State Building, the Alamo, and the Library of Congress as a National Historic Landmark.
The designation would include Civic Center Park, Veteran’s Park, the McNichols Building, the City and County Building and the Colorado State Capitol.
“For Civic Center to receive the honor of becoming National Historic Landmark would shine a spotlight on this city treasure and help to deliver Denver as a world-class city,” said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock while testifying at a National Park System committee meeting Tuesday.
The recommendation will go to the National Park Service Advisory Board on May 22nd and 23rd for further consideration.
U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Ken Salazar will be the one to officially designate the new Historic Landmarks.
