2 Ohio sites up for national historic register

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A state panel has nominated two locations prominent in Ohio's industrial history for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

The panel in Columbus agreed Friday to nominate Goodyear Hall and the Ohio Savings and Trust building in Akron and the Hoover Co. district in North Canton.

Ohio Historical Society spokesman Tom Wolf says it should be known in three months whether the locations will join the national register.

The state and federal designation provides prestige and federal tax credits.
