In January, Department of the Interior Secretary Sally Jewell approved the designation of the Painted Desert Community Complex as a National Historic Landmark. Following on the heels of the announcement was the successful restoration of the complex's gleaming Oasis Building storefront. Now, it’s time to celebrate these achievements! We hope you will join the National Trust, the National Park Service (NPS), and our local partners as we mark the milestone.
