CLEVELAND (AP) — The National Trust for Historic Preservation has honored a Cleveland group involved in protecting historic homes and churches.

The trustee award for organizational excellence was awarded to the Cleveland Restoration Society at a recent national conference in Indianapolis.

The Cleveland group is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

Over the past 20 years it has helped more than 5,000 homeowners, loaned $35 million and expanded to 22 communities outside Cleveland.

Its signature programs include a Sacred Landmarks historic church preservation project and a new survey on landmarks important in Cleveland's black history.
