COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Officials in northern Kentucky have nominated a park to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Kentucky Enquirer (https://cin.ci/2p9hIml) reports the Covington Commission recently nominated Devou Park, which has preserved Civil War sites and structures including Union fortification systems used to protect and prevent Confederate attacks on the area.

The National Register is an official list of historically significant places around the U.S.

Preservation and Planning Specialist Emily Ahouse said Devou Park’s nomination recognizes its importance in the area, from its associations with the Civil War to its development as a city park.

The nomination will be reviewed on May 17 by the State Historic Preservation Review Board and, if approved, sent to the National Register Review Board.
