Heavy Metal Rules: Image of Saugus Iron Works Wins 2012 NHL Photo Contest

WASHINGTON: The National Park Service today announced the winner of the 13
th annual National Historic Landmark Photo Contest. This year’s winning image of Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site in Saugus, Massachusetts is evocative of the early industry of the 17th century, represented by scenic waterwheels and forge. Here, European iron makers brought their much needed skills to a young Massachusetts Bay colony. Today, visitors to this nine-acre site explore working waterwheels, hot forges, mills, a historic 17th-century home and a lush river basin. The winning photo was
taken by Don Woods of North Clarendon, Vermont.

“Once again this year, the National Historic Landmark Photo Contest has captured the width and breadth of America’s historic sites,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “The tradition has grown over the past 13 years and each year I look forward to the results and seeing how people view our nation's national landmarks.”

This year’s 13 honorable mention photographs range from a detail of the elaborately ornate window of Louis Sullivan’s Carson, Pirie, Scott & Company storefront in downtown Chicago, to grand vistas such as the distant mountain of Pike’s Peak, framed by a rock formation in the Garden of the Gods Park. These places root us in our shared history and allow us to straddle past and present.

The annual National Historic Landmark Photo Contest encourages people to discover and explore landmark sites throughout the country – urban and rural, while traveling or exploring their own communities. Both professional and amateur photographers entered hundreds of images into this year’s contest creating a portfolio of photographs that offer an extraordinary glimpse of the stories and places waiting to be discovered.

National historic landmark status is the highest recognition accorded by the Secretary of the Interior to historic properties possessing "exceptional value or quality in illustrating and interpreting the heritage of the United States." Since the program began in 1935, fewer than 2,500 properties nationwide have achieved NHL designation.
