Since 2003, the Historic Preservation Office has sponsored the District of Columbia Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation. These awards honor outstanding preservation projects and exceptional contributions by individuals and organizations in support of historic preservation in the District.
Registration is now open to attend the 2019 District of Columbia Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation. This year’s program will take place Wednesday, May 8 at the historic DAR Constitution Hall. Cosponsored by the Historic Preservation Office, the DC Preservation League, and Daughters of the American Revolution, the awards celebrate preservation excellence in design and construction, volunteerism and community involvement, stewardship and education. Honorees will include recipients of the State Historic Preservation Officer’s Award, HBRB Chair’s Award, and the Individual Lifetime Achievement Award.
Built in 1929, Constitution Hall was designed by John Russell Pope to accommodate DAR’s annual Continental Congresses and other activities of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The monumental Neoclassical building, executed in Alabama limestone, contains the largest concert hall in Washington, DC which hosts a variety of events including concerts, speakers, films, graduations, and, of course, the Preservation Awards!
Please RSVP here to join us in this National Historic Landmark as we honor the 2019 preservation award winners.
