KC’s Kemper Arena up for crucial spot on National Register of Historic Places

A nomination to add Kansas City’s Kemper Arena to the National Register of Historic Places will soon be sent to the National Park Service, with officials citing the arena’s significance in local cultural history.

The listing, if approved, would qualify the building for historic tax credits, which would help the financing needed to convert the arena into a regional sports facility for amateur youth, adult and family sports.

Once it receives the nomination, the National Park Service has 45 days to take action. It can approve the listing to the National Register, return the nomination for corrections or revisions, or deny it.

If it is listed, the arena would join hundreds of other Kansas City buildings on the historic register.
