What’s next for the Quindaro Ruins?

excerpt ~Yet before any of that should take place, there is a need for more archaeological work at the site, said Marvin S. Robinson II, who has been advocating for preservation of the Quindaro Ruins for many years.

Robinson has hoped for a national historic landmark designation for the Quindaro Ruins, and this national commemorative site designation is considered to be a step toward that. Robinson said the landmark designation currently is under review now by the Interior Department, and a consultant is helping with the preliminary work necessary for that designation.

Kansas’ Quindaro Ruins on brink of historical designation

excerpt ~The designation comes from the National Park Service but falls short of national historic landmark status. Still, supporters said it creates opportunities for new assistance from the government to preserve the site, which was once a flourishing abolitionist community.

It specifically enables the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service to enter into financial agreements to help fund the site’s preservation.
