Firefighters Memorial and Yeon Visitors Center Receive National Register Recognition

It is now official, the David Campbell Memorial, also known as the Portland Firefighters Memorial, has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This is wonderful news and hopefully puts to rest any concerns that the memorial will be dismantled and parts used in a new memorial on the east bank of the Willamette.

The 1948 John Yeon designed Portland Visitors Information Center was also listed in the National Register. It is good to see post-war architecture gaining more recognition as part of our architectural heritage.
