Chicago’s Wrigley Field granted top historic landmark status


CHICAGO — Wrigley Field, the 106-year-old base­ball shrine that’s the Chica­go Cubs’ home, has been des­ig­nat­ed a Nation­al His­toric Land­mark.

U.S. Sec­re­tary of the Inte­ri­or David L. Bern­hardt announced the des­ig­na­tion Thurs­day, say­ing the ball­park has played a sig­nif­i­cant role in Chicago’s his­to­ry and the his­to­ry of pro­fes­sion­al sports.

“The his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of Wrigley Field is inter­wo­ven into our nation’s sto­ry and a key part of what has become America’s beloved pas­time for over a cen­tu­ry,” he said in a state­ment.

The his­toric land­mark sta­tus will give the Rick­etts fam­i­ly, who own the Cubs and spent about $1 bil­lion ren­o­vat­ing the ball­park, access to fed­er­al income tax cred­its on the “1060 Project” that start­ed at the end of the 2014 sea­son.

Nation­al His­toric Land­marks are build­ings, sites, dis­tricts, struc­tures and objects that have been deter­mined by the sec­re­tary of the inte­ri­or to be nation­al­ly sig­nif­i­cant in Amer­i­can his­to­ry and cul­ture, fed­er­al offi­cials said.

Wrigley Field now joins oth­er renowned his­toric places, includ­ing Fen­way Park in Boston, among some 2,600 oth­er land­marks across the coun­try.

Built in 1914, Wrigley Field has been the home of the Chica­go Cubs since 1916. The ball­park is two years younger than Fen­way Park, is the sec­ond-old­est ball­park in Major League Base­ball, and is also the Nation­al League’s old­est ball­park.
