Press Release: Historic Preservation Award Nominations Sought

Since 1993 the Wayne County Historical Society has recognized building owners who have demonstrated considerable effort and/or financial commitment towards the preservation of their buildings. Preservation of a building can include conservation, renovation, restoration, rehabilitation or adaptive re-use. Awards are given to those projects, which follow the US Department of Interior’s Guidelines for Historic Preservation, as closely as possible. Winners will be honored at the society’s annual awards reception on September 23rd.

If you or someone you know has recently completed a preservation project within Wayne County, the Society encourages you to submit nominations. Nominations will be accepted through June 19th. Include your name, address and phone number, person’s name, and address being nominated for award, description (including location) and photograph of the project. Nominations should be sent to WCHS, PO Box 446, Honesdale, PA 18431 or dropped off at 810 Main Street, Honesdale or e-mailed to wchs@ptd.net. Call WCHS Director Sally Talaga at 253-3240 or e-mail her at wchs@ptd.net if you have any questions.
