PULASKI COUNTY, MISSOURI—Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Expert Member Robert G. Stanton today joined in the festivities officially dedicating SSG Samuel A. Countee Hall at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The rehabilitation of the building, one of only two remaining World War II-era black officers clubs in the nation, was completed earlier this year.

The restoration of the building was the result of a successful Section 106 historic preservation process that involved the Army, Missouri State Historic Preservation Officer, National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the ACHP. Through this collaboration, a compatible long-term use was found for the building.

ACHP Chairman Aimee Jorjani and members of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation are expressing support for several important pieces of legislation that impact historic preservation. The ACHP voted at its summer business meeting on July 10 to support the Preserving America’s Battlefields Act; Restore Our Parks Act/Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act; Historic Tax Credit Growth and Opportunity Act; and National Heritage Area Act.

Chairman Jorjani sent letters to members of Congress commenting on these bills.
