Applications due for Preservation Achievement Awards

    If you’ve worked your tail off to breathe new life into your historic property (or know someone who has), you might want to consider applying for the Preservation Achievement Award.


    Given each year by the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia to businesses, organizations and individuals, the award recognizes “outstanding achievement in the field of historic preservation.”

    Applicants must submit before and after photos, in addition to some information about the property and owner. The deadline in Jan. 28, and the awards luncheon is May 17.

    Renovations done to preserve or recreate historical accuracies, as well as new construction with historical touches, qualify.
