CONCORD (AP) — Concord officials are trying to get a unique industrial building designated as a nationally recognized historic landmark.
The Concord Monitor reports that city council passed a resolution earlier this week calling for city officials to ask the state for money to help place the gasholder on the National Register of Historic Places.
The 1888 Concord gasholder is believed to be the last of its kind in the country with its interior works intact. Retired state architectural historian Jim Garvin has said gasholders changed America. The new lighting fuel technology enabled businesses to run three shifts. People could also read, gather and walk the streets late into the night.
The newspaper reports owner Liberty Utilities is preparing a proposal of future plans for the site.
