The National Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world."

Description

The Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument, surrounding Young’s home and adjoining farmland in Wilberforce, Ohio, was established by presidential proclamation on March 25, 2013. With this proclamation, the national monument became the 401st unit of the national park system. It is envisioned that a primary objective will focus on the monument’s role as an entryway to expanded understanding of Charles Young and the Buffalo Soldiers. Creative efforts to broadly link and share stories, resources, and inspiration with associated sites and partnership organizations is a core element of the national monument’s mission. The purpose of Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument is to preserve and protect Col. Charles Young's home and surrounding farmland, and to commemorate and interpret his life and accomplishments. The national monument also commemorates and interprets the service, struggles, and achievements of the Buffalo Soldiers in their duty to the United States.
