ACHF held the 42nd Annual Preservation Awards and its annual meeting on Monday, June 13, at the historic Fine Arts Theatre on the University of Georgia campus. Dr. David Saltz of the UGA Department of Film and Theatre Studies welcomed the crowd, and described the condition of the Theatre before its restoration in 2009, which earned it a Preservation Award from ACHF in 2010.
ACHF President Jennifer Lewis and Executive Director Amy Kissane then kicked off the Annual Meeting with an overview of the year’s accomplishments.
Each year ACHF recognizes property owners who have gone above and beyond in caring for and fixing up their historic properties by giving out preservation awards for outstanding historic rehabilitations, restorations, and stewardship. We also recognize outstanding new construction in historic areas (referred to as infill), outstanding publications and programs, and more. Since 1967 the Foundation has given out a total of over 300 awards at its annual spring meetings. Thanks to everyone who attended!
