Nina Simone's Childhood Home Named 'National Treasure' After Efforts by Adam Pendleton, Ellen Gallagher, Rashid Johnson, and Julie Mehretu

The childhood home of Nina Simone was acquired last year by artists Adam Pendleton, Ellen Gallagher, Rashid Johnson, and Julie Mehretu, in an effort to preserve the structure and honor the life, work, and legacy of Nina Simone. The home, located in Tryon, North Carolina, has now been designed a "National Treasure" by the National Historic Trust, which plans to preserve the home in collaboration with the community of Tryon, the North Carolina African America Heritage Fund, and the World Monuments Fund. The organizations will conduct studies and develop a strategy for finding a new use for the house.
