Another legacy Burroughs left behind is the National Training School for Women and Girls in Washington, D.C., which she founded in 1909. The school was renamed in her honor -- the Nannie Helen Burroughs School -- after her death, and is now a National Historic Landmark. She was involved in the school until she died. In addition, Burroughs helped establish the National Association of Colored Women in 1896, which is still active today.
