The project received a Jury Citation Award commented:

“This project exquisitely restores a stone barn and its adjacent carriage house for public use as a visitor center and museum at the Woodlawn Manor Cultural Park. The integrity of the original structures is preserved and the history of the local African American and Quaker communities reinterpreted through multi-media exhibits. ”
