Restoration Progress

The next chapter for the Cooley House.

2022 – November 01

Governor Jon Bel Edwards and Mayor Friday Ellis were joined by federal, state and local leaders as well as the Cooley House Foundation board and the supporters as we announced a $483,500 Save America’s Treasures Grant from the National Park Service for restoration of the Cooley House. Tax-deductible donations to the Cooley House Foundation will be counted towards the required grant match and in effect, will be doubled.
