Wrigley Field is now a National Historic Landmark


Chicago, Illinois (WGN)-- On Thursday the Chicago Cubs tweeted out, “Wrigley Field has been designated as a National Historic Landmark, affirming its significance to the city of Chicago, professional supports, and American history and culture.”

According to the Chicago Tribune this has been over five years in the making.

Wrigley has been home to baseball icons such as Ernie Banks, Sammy Sosa, Ron Santo, and Greg Maddux. It also held the 2016 team that ended their 107 year World Series drought.

Now the “Windy City” can add the field to the same list that holds the Trade Building, Columbus Park, the Henry Gerber House, the Reliance Building, and the Marquette Building. Illinois has 89 National Historic Landmarks.
