Report: Superdome named to National Register of Historic Places

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Mercedes Benz Superdome has been placed on the National Register of Historic places, according to a report from our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

The designation, which was proposed by a Tulane University student, is opposed by the state of Louisiana because the listing may slow down future development and upgrades to the facility, the report said.

The facility is home to the New Orleans Saints and has hosted some of the more iconic and historic moments in professional and college sports.
