YARMOUTH — Maine Preservation is seeking nomination for its annual Honor Awards, which celebrate excellence in historic preservation rehabilitation, craft and leadership.
Last year’s awards included recognition of projects in Lisbon, Lewiston, Bath, Brunsick and Hallowell, among other places across Maine. Since 1998, Maine Preservation has recognized historic preservation successes across the state and celebrated the people that make them happen.
The awards program powerfully illustrates how adaptively using and updating vacant and underutilized historic structures is an essential ingredient for community revitalization and vigor. The Honor Awards are open to projects that have substantially improved historic properties and been completed within the past three years or are scheduled to be completed by September and leaders who have made a long-term statewide impact on historic preservation.
Nominations are due June 15. The staff and Board of Trustees of Maine Preservation will select award recipients. Winners will be recognized in November.
