Missouri Preservation will hold its 2013 statewide preservation awards ceremony on May 7, 2013 in the state Capitol in Jefferson City. The event was postponed from Feb. 27, 2013.
The event includes an awards ceremony and luncheon. Call 660.882.5947 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations.
This year’s winners will include seven buildings, three women, one book and one historic initiative. Such events are important to mark the successes of historic preservation, such as the transformation of an under-used school building into senior apartments, and to spotlight the efforts of people spearheading preservation efforts.
The buildings are: the Power House at Union Station in Kansas City, the A.F. Davis House in Fayette, the Antoine Lalumondiere Home in St. Genevieve, the Bismarck Depot in Bismarck, First Presbyterian Church in La Grange, Council Plaza Phillips 66 Gas Station in St. Louis and the Trenton High School, now Trenton Senior Apartments in Trenton.
Missouri Preservation/Missouri Alliance for Historic Preservation is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting, supporting and coordinating historic preservation activities in Missouri.
