Two Ohio sites named national landmarks
Two Ohio sites are now National Historic Landmarks. The sites in Dayton and Akron were added Wednesday along with 25 others.
According to the Secretary of the Interior, The National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers/Dayton Veterans Administration Home represents an evolution and shift in federal care for veterans. It started in 1917 during World War I and continued through the establishment of the Veterans Administration in 1930.
The other Ohio site is the Akron home of Dr. Robert Holbrook Smith, one of the co-founders of Alcoholics Anonymous.
