The Dayton Veterans Affairs campus has been awarded National Historic Landmark status! This culminates a 10+ year effort to obtain this important designation. It spans 51 buildings/structures and 266 acres, primarily dealing with those areas significant from World War I to the creation of the Veterans Administration in 1930. This designation will open new opportunities to conserve the campus.

Credit goes to many community leaders such as U.S. Rep Mike Turner, former U.S. Rep. Tony Hall, and AVHC Board of Trustees President Judge Walter Rice.
