In July of 2020, Tawawa Chimney Corner was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service.

Founded in January 2021, The Bishop Reverdy C. & Emma S. Ransom Foundation was established to pursue a mission of advancing opportunities that inform the general public about the history and impact of civil rights and social justice efforts in America.

Getting Tawawa Chimney Corner restored is the first step.
