ESSEX HISTORICAL SOCIETY Preservation Award
Voting is now open for nominations for the 2013 Preservation Award! Please vote for the Ivoryton Playhouse!
In 2013, the EHS will be awarding the third winner of the Preservation Award. In 2011 the first Preservation Award was presented to the Ivoryton Library and in 2012 the Centerbrook Meetinghouse was honored. Both buildings were restored, bringing back the integrity of the historical periods in which they were constructed.
From May 1 – May 30, you may cast your ballot at post offices in Ivoryton, Essex and Centerbrook. And this year, you can also VOTE ONLINE!
Qualifications for the award:
-The building can be either commercial or residential
-The building needs to have been erected prior to 1936
-The historic character of the original structure has to have been preserved in keeping with the period it was initially constructed
Voting will close on May 30, votes will be tallied and then the award will be presented at the EHS Annual Strawberry Social on June 23!
