Each year, Historic Savannah Foundation (HSF) celebrates the best of preservation by presenting Preservation Awards to individuals and organizations whose contributions demonstrate outstanding excellence in historic preservation.
Nominations for the 2013 Preservation Awards are now closed. The award winners will be announced at HSF’s Preservation Awards Luncheon on May 9, 2013 during Preservation Festival. Tickets will be available online in April. Please contact Danielle Meunier at 912.233.7787 for more information.
In addition to the Preservation Awards given out to individuals organizations and projects, HSF also has the following awards:
Nichola Parker Coe Volunteer of the Year Award
Each year, the Historic Savannah Foundation presents the Nichola Parker Coe Volunteer Award to a single volunteer who exemplifies dedication and commitment to the preservation mission upon which the Historic Savannah Foundation was founded. This award is given in memory of Nichola Parker Coe, who served as HSF’s comptroller for fifteen years.
The Davenport Trophy, the highest preservation accolade one can earn in Savannah, is presented only when warranted. Past recipients are a veritable Who’s Who among preservationists in the Hostess City, and they include Mills B. Lane, Jr., Lee and Emma Adler, W.W. Law, Beth Reiter, Mills B. Lane IV, and Helen Downing among others.
Beginning in 2013, HSF will award—when warranted—a special award for advocacy. Named the Lee and Emma Adler Award for Preservation Advocacy, HSF will honor individuals who uphold the spirit of these two people who dedicated their lives to protecting the invaluable and irreplaceable assets of this city.
