DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - A celebration is planned for a Dearborn neighborhood that’s been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Mayor John O’Reilly Jr. says in a statement that Springwells Park, which dates to the 1930s, “is a gem in the City of Dearborn.”

The Detroit Free Press reports (https://on.freep.com/1QL1aIc ) a Historic District unveiling ceremony and reception are planned for 3 p.m. Saturday.

A sign is to be dedicated, and local officials and state legislators are to attend the event.

O’Reilly says the designation “recognizes the special character of this historic district and bolsters the reputation and value of the neighborhood and the surrounding area.” The neighborhood officially was added to the National Register earlier this year.
