LOS ANGELES, CA — Seven local sites have been added to the National Register of Historic Places including the Lincoln Theatre.

Seven Los Angeles buildings that experts say have played significant roles in the lives of local African Americans have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places, authorities have announced.

The listing follows a yearlong study of some 4,000 parcels in South Los Angeles by consultants hired by the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency. The survey is said to be the first “historical thematic study” ever undertaken in California of buildings that were integral to the African American community.

That’s good news. The theater building seems to be holding up well and should be with us for a while.
