MTC – The Monumental Task Committee

The MTC is a predominantly volunteer-run monument preservation organization that was founded in New Orleans in 1989. Our mission is to restore, repair and forever maintain all of the monuments located in the city. Members of our Board of Directors come from diverse professional and educational backgrounds, contributing decades of experience to our preservation efforts. As we move into our third decade of service we are excited about the possibilities that we can achieve with the help of our collaborators and supporters.

  • The MTC is an all-volunteer, non-political organization that has taken care of ALL New Orleans monuments for over 25 years.
  • The MTC does not support the removal of any city monuments, especially those that have graced the city’s landscape for over a century.
  • The MTC does not consider any of the city’s monuments to be “nuisances” as defined by the 1993 ordinance.
  • The MTC encourages the installation of new monuments to forgotten heroes or historic events.
  • The MTC supports the installation of interpretive plaques to aid in the ongoing discussion which puts the monument in a more current context.
