The Congo Square Preservation Society has been instrumental in the resurrection of drumming and cultural activities in Congo Square. In 1993, the Society was successful in placing Congo Square on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1997 the Foundation led the effort to erect the Congo Square historic marker. The Congo Square Preservation Society sponsors weekly Sunday drum circles in Congo Square that date back to 1988. In 2013, the Congo Square Preservation society launched the Congo Square Living Classroom Fieldtrip which consists of an on-site tour of the Armstrong Park Sculpture Garden followed by the Congo Square Drum & Dance Workshop.
