Grand Ole Opry House Now On National Register of Historic Places

February 24, 2015

As you know the National Register of Historic Places is the nation’s official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.  Now that list include The Grand Ole Opry House!


While the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville is recognized as an important country music venue today, it is not usually thought of as being historic. Constructed 1972-1974, the performance hall and broadcast studio was listed in the National Register for its exceptional national importance because of its impact in popular culture, entertainment and the communications industry. The largest radio and television broadcast studio in the world when completed, the building represents a new era in country music, when the industry was becoming more mainstream and using new sounds, marketing and production techniques. The building continues to be used for shows and broadcasts.
