In September of 2005, the National Trust for Historic Preservation presented its prestigious Board of Advisors Honor Award to the Monroe Elementary School/Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site. Brown v. Board of Education NHS was the only individual National Park Service site honored for its preservation efforts.
The National Preservation Honor Awards are given to individuals, nonprofit organizations, public agencies and corporations whose skill and determination have given new meaning to their communities through preservation of our architectural and cultural heritage.
These efforts include citizen attempts to save and maintain important landmarks; companies and craftsmen whose work restores the richness of the past; the vision of public officials who support preservation projects and legislation in their communities; and educators and journalists who help Americans understand the value of preservation.
