Congratulations to Baltimore’s 2013 Historic Preservation Award Winners!

Thank you to everyone who joined us last month for our 2013 Preservation Awards Celebration at Mill No. 1. We owe a special thanks to our event sponsor PNC Bank and to our host Terra Nova Ventures whose tremendous rehabilitation of the historic Mt. Vernon Mill Company No. 1 was a highlight of the evening.

1009297_10152946930315650_197939040_oEvery year we have the pleasure of honoring a host of projects and individuals for a diverse range of exceptional restorations, thoughtful adaptive reuse projects, and leadership within Baltimore’s preservation community. This year was no different, as we recognized the meticulous restoration of the Basilica of the Assumption, the inspiring rehabilitation of the former David Bachrach House in Reservoir Hill, and the adaptive reuse of the historic Morgan Millwork Company as the MICA Graduate Studio Center. We were especially glad to present Ms. Kathleen Kotarba with the Douglas H. Gordon Award for Lifetime Achievement for over 30 years of service to historic preservation through her work with the Baltimore Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation and well beyond.

If you couldn’t join us last month you can find a gallery of photos from the event on Flickr or on our Facebook page. Read on for the full list of award winners and join us in celebrating the businesses and individuals who have contributed to these important accomplishments in historic preservation. Stay tuned for more updates over the summer profiling each award-winning project!
