National Historic Landmark Dedication
April 19, 2017 1:00 PM
At an event on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 1PM PT, at the Painted Desert Community Complex, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Park Service will host a public reception to celebrate the restoration of the gleaming Oasis Building storefront and dedicate the National Historic Landmark plaque. The public and members of the media can hear from a roster of special guests, state officials and local partners about the recently completed work and importance of the Painted Desert Community Complex as a national model that integrates sustainable practices and the treatment of Mid-Century resources throughout the National Park Service.
The public is also encouraged to explore Petrified Forest National Park during National Park Week, the weekends of April 15–16 and 22–23, 2017, when all national parks across the country will waive admission fees.
