A lot of great preservation work happened in Baltimore last year. Local developers fixed up historic buildings, neighbors volunteered as tour guides, and architects made plans for remarkable restorations. Please help us discover all the great preservation work that took place in 2017 and all the people behind it! We need your nominations for Baltimore Heritage’s annual preservation awards and we are accepting submissions through Wednesday, February 14. Please send us a nomination today! Self nominations are welcome.
Our awards recognize preservation work of all varieties. Our Heritage Achievement Awards honor people who have made a contribution to Baltimore’s historic buildings and neighborhoods.
Do you have a friend who is tireless in promoting their historic neighborhood? Did you write a book on Baltimore history or architecture? Or volunteer with a local heritage nonprofit? Our Heritage Achievement Awards seek to recognize people and organizations that support, protect, and celebrate historic places.
Our Preservation Project Awards honor owners, architects, contractors, and craftspeople who have recently completed brick-and-mortar projects, from restoring a historic rowhouse to creating new spaces in a former brewery or factory. We know that preservation work comes in all sizes and often requires a whole team of people, from developers and architects to masons, plumbers, and electricians. When we give out awards, we want to recognize all the people who make a rehab project happen!
We are accepting nominations up untilWednesday February 14, 2018 so send in your nomination or help spread the word! Thank you for helping us recognize Baltimore’s heritage stewards. Stay tuned for details on our annual awards celebration this spring.
What better place to celebrate outstanding historic preservation work in Baltimore over the past year than at Lexington Market? We hope you agree and can join us on Thursday, June 15 for our 2017 Preservation Awards Celebration. All the food for our celebration comes from market vendors: Faidley’s Seafood, Mary Mervis, Berger’s and more market favorites. The evening features this year’s preservation award-winners. The recipients range from people who rehabbed humble rowhouses to those who restored the expansive warehouse spaces such as Open Works and the Lion Brothers Building.
Baltimore Heritage just opened nominations for our 2017 Preservation Awards! This is our fifty-seventh year of celebrating the people behind our city’s great preservation projects. Can you help us find the past year’s best building rehab projects? The most creative examples of building reuse? An inspiring educational program? If you can, then please submit a nomination today.
Every year, we strive to recognize the architects, contractors, and craftspeople working on bricks-and-mortar preservation projects along with dedicated owners who preserve everything from former factories to single family homes. We honor people who write books and blogs, people who research and teach local history, and people advocate for community revitalization. Did you tackle a big rehab project this year? We even have a “sweat equity” award to recognize homeowners and small business owners who do the hard work of fixing up old buildings back all on their own.
We are only accepting nominations up until Tuesday, February 28, 2017 so send in your nomination soon and spread the word! Thank you for helping us recognize Baltimore’s heritage stewards. Stay tuned for details on our annual awards celebration this spring.
Please join us for our 2016 Historic Preservation Awards Celebration at the Green Street Academy, the 1925 former Gwynns Falls High School that has been wonderfully restored for a 21st century charter school. This year, we are honoring a wide range of projects from a humble historic trolley stop in Roland Park to a city automotive garage turned makerspace for start up manufacturers in Port Covington. From single family homes to large hotels and theaters, the array of projects speaks volumes to the quantity and quality of restoration work going on in Baltimore. Read the full list of award-winning projects.
