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.

A Note From Our President

Thank you for visiting our website and expressing interest in the rich history the monuments of New Orleans represent. Our organization is the story of the best expression of community service. Over the course of 3 decades our members & volunteers have polished, painted, pulled weeds, provided education, and shored monuments to maintain our area’s historic built environment. This has all been done at no cost to taxpayers. Our board, volunteers, and advisory committee are composed of talented individuals that are passionate about our city.
We all know that our city contains world-class art sculpted by the great artists spanning many generations and the MTC is grateful to do its part to contribute to New Orleans being a world-wide cultural gem. We invite you to join us as we continue to preserve and enhance the beauty of New Orleans in the years to come.
Yours in Community Spirit,
Pierre McGraw
President & Founder
