Heritage Foundation seeks nominations for Preservation Awards
The Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County seeks nominations of outstanding historic preservation projects, including rehabilitations of historic residential and commercial structures and new construction that complements the historic character of the community.
Award winners will be recognized at the Foundation’s 46th Annual Meeting and Preservation Awards Thursday, May 2 at the Franklin Theatre at 5:30 p.m.
“May is National Historic Preservation Month, and this year’s theme is 'See, Save and Celebrate,'” said Mary Pearce, executive director of the Heritage Foundation. “We can think of no better way to observe the month than by seeing what has been saved in our community and celebrating the preservations who made it happen. Our annual Preservation Awards recognize the vision and efforts of those who save our community treasurers to make sure the place we call home is protected for future generations.”
Preservation Awards will be given in the following categories:
· Residential rehabilitation of a pre-1900 historic property
· Residential rehabilitation of a post-1900 historic property
· Commercial rehabilitation of a pre-1900 historic property
· Commercial rehabilitation of a post-1900 historic property
· New commercial construction
· New residential construction
· New institutional construction
· Conservation Easement
Nominated properties will be photographed by the Heritage Foundation, shown in a presentation at the annual meeting and published on the Foundation’s website at www.historicfranklin.com. You may nominate your own property or nominate someone else’s property with the owner’s permission.
