Spotlight on Miracle Mile

Tucson's Miracle Mile on old US 89 was listed in the National Register of Historic Places honoring mid-century modern highway architecture.  The listing became official December 11.

According to Demion Clinco, Executive Director of the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation, and lead author of the nomination, “The designation of Tucson’s northern historic highway corridor represent years of community advocacy and a long term commitment and investment form the City of Tucson to support the revitalization of of the Oracle Area.” He continued, “This part of our city reflects early and mid-century automotive culture and is marked by an outstanding collection of now historic motels, service stations and colorful neon signs.”
