MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The National Trust for Historic Preservation is recognizing the agencies that preserved Montgomery's historic Greyhound Bus Station and made it into a museum honoring the Freedom Riders from the civil rights era.
The National Trust will present its award for Federal Partnerships in Historic Preservation to the General Services Administration, the U.S. District Court, the Alabama Historical Commission and the Greyhound Bus Station Advisory Committee on Thursday in Montgomery.
The bus station now houses the Freedom Rides Museum. It honors civil rights activists who were attacked by a mob at the station in 1961 because they were integrating interstate bus travel.
The award was officially presented by the National Trust last month in Spokane, Wash., but Thursday's ceremony in Montgomery is an opportunity to involve participants in the project.
