We are thrilled to announce this year’s Excellence in Historic Preservation Award winners! The nine projects honored this year are strikingly different, but one thing that links them all is the connection they have to their respective communities. It reminds us that preservation is about people as much as it is about buildings. Good preservation takes care of our built environment, but it also takes care of our cities, towns, and neighbors. Considering the year we’ve all had, it’s a nice change of pace to celebrate these successes – and remember how our field of historic preservation can bring us all together, even when we are far apart.
