But not for its original purpose, as it is in this cae in the original “purpose”, yes. A historic=memorial is and likely ever was a memorial. An archaeological site was something else in the past, but it wasn’t called archaeological site at that time. The history tag in OSM is what it currently is, not what it was. That bald statement doesn't capture the subtleties of repurposed things. It does not handle the case, for instance, of a building that is historically signficant (and listed) for being the first district school in the area, later was a meeting hall reenported to have be a meeting place of the rebels in the Helderberg War, and is now the office of a security company. Schools in the time it was built looked very much like private houses, although the brickwork has a cornerstone bearing the date it was laid (uncommon in private houses here), and the door lintel says 'District School No. 4'  (but is obscured by a portico that was added later). What it is now is building=office, and it doesn't look much different from neighbouring small offices (which aped its style - and the building in question has been remodeled so many times that it's now inauthentic for any single period). Still, there's an explanatory marker out front and a little display of old artifacts in the entryway, and it's on the National Register of Historic Places. Simply saying, "what it is now is a building=office', while true, loses information.  yes, the number is '4' - '1', '2', and '3', while planned earlier, were actually constructed later.
