MACON, Ga. (AP) – Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon is set to be officially described as something many visitors would call it anyway.
The monument is expected to be designated as a National Treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation during a news conference Friday.
The Macon Telegraph reports the designation is made possible through the efforts of the Ocmulgee National Park and Preserve Initiative, the Ocmulgee National Monument Association and Historic Macon Foundation.
The National Trust uses its more than 65 years of expertise and resources to protect a growing portfolio of more than 80 National Treasures.
Ocmulgee National Monument is one of 16 sites listed in the Southeast region.
