The Chandler Baseball Camp is being added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Oklahoma Historical Society announced Monday that the property has been added to the list.

Located in Chandler, about 40 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, construction on the camp began in 1957 and continued until the early 1960s. Historical Society officials say the camp was designed to teach children baseball skills in a traditional camp setting. The camp operated for more than 40 years.

The National Register of Historic Places is a list of culturally significant buildings, locations, structures and objects targeted for preservation.
