WASHINGTON, DC — Advisory Council on Historic Preservation Chairman Aimee Jorjani today honored a restoration project at Fort Leonard Wood Missouri of one of the last remaining World War II-era black officers clubs in the nation with the ACHP Chairman’s Award for Achievement in Historic Preservation.

Chairman Jorjani presented the award to Alex Beehler, Assistant Secretary of the United States Army and Major General Donna W. Martin, Fort Leonard Wood Commanding General, during a ceremony at a reception during the ACHP’s business meeting at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.

Irish American Heritage Month was first celebrated in March in the U.S. in 1991 to recognize and celebrate the contributions Irish Americans have made to the United States. However, life was not always easy for Irish immigrants trying to make a life for themselves in America in the late 19th century.

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announce the call for nominations for the 2020 ACHP/HUD Secretary’s Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation. This joint award honors an outstanding project that has advanced the goals of historic preservation while promoting affordable housing, community revitalization, and/or enhanced economic opportunities for low- and moderate-income families.
