Peavey Plaza gets its place on the NRHP

Peavey Plaza

Today Peavey Plaza was officially listed as a “Historic Place” on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). For those not familiar, Peavey Plaza is a urban “park plaza” located in Downtown Minneapolis. The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota (PAM) and The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) began efforts to get Peavey listed on the NRHP last Fall as an attempt to deter the City of Minneapolis from its plans to demolish it. While being listed on the NRHP doesn’t necessarily save Peavey from being demolished, it is a big step in the right direction. This is big news for Minnesota historic preservation, modernist preservation and historic landscapes. A special thanks goes to PAM and TCLF for the efforts to make this happen!
