Seeking Nominations for Preservation Awards

Tower280, 280 E Broad St., Rochester, NY 14604.

What do five preservation projects in the village of Perry, a 1960s office building, a beloved diorama, an abbey in the Genesee Valley, and the tower and spire of a local college have in common?

All were recipients of Preservation Awards from the Landmark Society of Western New York in 2018.

Each year, in the fall, the Landmark Society presents several awards to projects, people and organizations who, through their dedication and hard work, have helped to promote historic preservation in our nine-county area. With the start of a new year, the Landmark Society’s Awards Committee is seeking recommendations for its 2019 Preservation Awards. Award suggestions are welcome from Monroe, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates counties.
