History preserved

Congratulations to the residents of Glen Carbon, East St. Louis and Belleville for successfully adding the Glen Carbon School; the Broadview Hotel, Union Trust Bank Co. building and the downtown East St. Louis Historic District, all in East St. Louis, and the West Belleville Historic District, all to the National Register of Historic Places. Not only is local history being preserved for future generations, but the designation will enhance interest within the community and attract visitors and tourists. I encourage the local historical societies to promote these additions to the maximum.
