The foundation that owns and operates Monticello is being honored for its efforts to restore and preserve the historic property.
The Thomas Jefferson Foundation is this year's recipient of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical America's Arthur Ross award for stewardship.
Established in 1982, the Arthur Ross awards are given in 10 categories. The stewardship award recognizes the preservation, upkeep and maintenance of an existing entity over time.
The Thomas Jefferson Foundation was scheduled to receive the award Monday at a ceremony in New York.
