The Stonewall Inn is on the brink of making history — again.
The venerable Greenwich Village club — known as the birthplace of the gay rights movement — might become the first national monument dedicated to LGBT history.
A host of politicians gathered at the site Monday to meet with Sally Jewell, U.S. Secretary of the Interior, and National Park Service director Jonathan Jarvis.
On the table was a proposal to have President Obama add a unit to the National Park System dedicated to the history of the Stonewall Uprising in Christopher Park and the surrounding streets.
The Stonewall Inn was the location of a now-historic week-long uprising in June, 1969 that sparked the modern LGBT civil rights movement in America.
