Fenway: A National Landmark
BOSTON (AP) The owners of Fenway Park have applied for federal landmark status, which would make renovation work eligible for a rehabilitation tax credit.
The Red Sox are in the midst of a nearly decade-long program of 200 (m) million dollars in renovations at Fenway, which was built in 1912.
Team officials couldn't put a dollar figure on the rehabilitation tax credit, which is designed to give property owners an incentive to save historic structures.
According to the federal government's list of National Historic Landmarks, the only other Major League stadiums considered for landmark status were Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park, both in Chicago.
The process was never completed for either stadium, and Comiskey since has been torn down. ^
