ST. GEORGE — The hillside "D" that has looked down upon St. George for over 100 years recently was recognized with a listing on the National Parks Service's National Register of Historic Places.

The landmark's newfound status became the topic of a plethora of social media posts by area residents and officials about a year ago as they applauded a move set into motion by Utah Tech University about a year ago.

"Thank you Utah Tech University, formerly Dixie State University, for taking the lead on protecting the D on the Hill," St. George Mayor Michele Randall posted on Facebook last Wednesday.

The hillside D was created in 1915 and has been owned by the university through its alumni association since 1949.
