In celebration of National Preservation Month, the Jacksonville Historic Preservation Commission will honor 16 projects and services at their annual awards ceremony.
National Preservation Month was created by the National Trust for Historic Preservation to spotlight grassroots preservation efforts around the country. Communities take this time to celebrate historic preservation activities in order to create greater public awareness, understanding and appreciation of efforts to preserve local historic resources and heritage.
The Commission’s annual awards ceremony recognizes outstanding projects and services that promote historic preservation in the Jacksonville area. Award categories include heritage education, residential and commercial rehabilitation, architecturally compatible new construction; preservation projects and services; and “Great Save.” The awards will be presented by the Historic Preservation Commissioners and their staff with vice-chair Barry B. Underwood acting as the master of ceremony.
