We examine the star clusters in the luminous irregular galaxy NGC 4449. We use a near-infrared spectrum and broadband images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope to place a limit of 8-15 Myr on the age of the bright central object in NGC 4449. Its luminosity and size suggest that it is comparable to young super star clusters. However, there is a peculiar nucleated-bar structure at the center of this star cluster, and we suggest that this structure is debris from the interaction that has… Expand
