MINNEAPOLIS, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Historic Sites Board of Review has asked that a prominent structure that partially collapsed earlier this year be removed from the National Register of Historic Places.

The two-story Parker House Hotel in Minneapolis, Kan., was built in 1887 and partially collapsed June 7. The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/1fWFpnb) reports some of the debris hit a natural gas riser and forced the evacuation of downtown Minneapolis.

The City Council voted later to pay $76,800 to have the hotel torn down.

Staff from the National Register in Washington, D.C., will consider the request.
