Two local industrial sites nominated for National Register of Historic Places

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A state panel has nominated two locations prominent in Ohio's industrial history for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

According to the Akron Beacon Journal, the panel in Columbus agreed Friday to nominate Goodyear Hall and the Ohio Savings and Trust building in Akron and the Hoover Co. district in North Canton.

Ohio Historical Society spokesman Tom Wolf says it should be known in three months whether the locations will join the national register.

The state and federal designation provides prestige and federal tax credits.
