30 Years on the National Registry of Historic Places
30 years ago today, April 15th 1993; the RMS Queen Mary, an iconic ocean liner that has been an integral part of maritime history for nearly a century, was added to the National Register of Historic Places, a list of historic properties that have been deemed significant to the history of the United States.
The Queen Mary's addition to the Register, ensured that its legacy would be preserved for future generations. The designation provides the ship with a level of protection and recognition that will help secure its place in Long Beach for years to come. The Queen Mary is more than just a ship - it's a piece of history that has captured the imaginations of people around the world. Its addition to the National Register of Historic Places was a well-deserved honor that recognizes its cultural and historical significance.
Queen Mary Foundation President, & QMI Advisor, Diane Rush; offered these comments on the anniversary:
The former Queen Mary Foundation played a crucial role in the effort to get the ship added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Foundation worked tirelessly to gather the necessary documentation & support for the ship's inclusion on the register. Their efforts helped to raise awareness of the Queen Mary's cultural & historical significance, and ultimately led to its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.
