Historic Preservation Awards


 
 
Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Awards
continue a tradition since 1979 whereby
excellence in preservation is recognized and honored
Presented each fall by Preservation Pennsylvania, the annual awards recognize significant contributions in the field of historic preservation made by both individuals and organizations. Recognition encompasses the categories of preservation initiatives, construction and archaeology projects. Pennsylvania's highest honor, the F. Otto Haas Award, is given in recognition of outstanding contributions to preservation made by an individual or group.
This year's award event will celebrated the 50th anniversary of the
passage of the National Historic Preservation Act in October 1966
