The Bagg's Square East Historic District in Utica is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi made the announcement today.

Brindisi announced in June that the area had been placed on the State Register of Historic Places, which meant it was under consideration for listing on the National Register.

“The Bagg’s Square East Historic District is now in some very impressive company, being listed on the nation’s official list of landmarks worth protecting because of their importance to the history of our country.  Along with bringing more interest in the neighborhood from preservationists, being listed on the register will bring more visitors to our area to see this important part of upstate New York’s heritage,” Brindisi said.

The Bagg's Square East District runs south from Union Station along Catherine and Second Streets to the Oriskany Plaza area.
