Annual Preservation Awards

On Tuesday, May 12, 2015, Historic Seattle hosts its 7th Annual Preservation Awards ceremony at the landmark Good Shepherd Center to acknowledge recent successes in the field. The Awards showcase and recognize exceptional public and private projects, as well as individuals and community groups, that preserve and protect Seattle’s built heritage for future generations.

The event begins at 5:30 pm and ends at 8:00 pm. Enjoy traditional Scandinavian “smorrebrod” appetizers, wine and beer, desserts, coffee and tea, and celebrate the award recipients with friends and colleagues.

Dennis Alan Andersen, a former Historic Seattle Council member and former Chair of the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board, will offer remarks and present awards. Andersen is co-author, with Jeffrey Karl Ochsner, of Distant Corner: Seattle Architects and the Legacy of H.H. Richardson, and served on the advisory committee and authored essays for Shaping Seattle Architecture.

Tickets are available online or by calling 206-622-6952, ext. 221.

Historic Seattle thanks lead event sponsor KeyBank and 4Culture for their additional support.
