Miami Marine Stadium Gets National Historic Site Designation

The Miami Marine Stadium in Virginia Key has officially been designated as a historic place, according to the National Park Service.

An announcement made Tuesday by Secretary of State Ken Detzner says the stadium is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The stadium was built and opened in 1963. Its design serves as a reflection of the modernist architectural characteristics of the mid-1960s.

Various events were hosted at the venue for almost 30 years until its closing in 1992, following the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. 

The stadium has since received recognition for its mid-century design by World Monuments Fund and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, among others.
