National historic park celebrated during Oswegofest


Saturday morning's rains didn't stop a special dedication from taking place in Oswego, Kansas.  The Riverside Park in Labette County received national recognition from Kansas Parks and Services during Oswegofest.

The park was approved for listing to the National Register of Historic Places on July 17, 2012, and today, officials presented a sign to be placed in the park.

Oswego Mayor Glenn Fischer says the park appeals to everyone.

"Before we moved to Oswego, we came down and drove through the community, and one of the things that impressed me the most about Oswego was the city park," says Fischer.

Because of the rain this morning, officials were not able to place the sign in the park, but plan to do it on Sunday.
