2017 Preservation Awards


And, the envelope, please…!  It’s again time for The Landmark Society’s Annual Preservation Awards, given to individuals and organizations in our nine-county area that have made outstanding efforts in the preservation of their homes, public buildings, historic properties, and landscapes. 

The ceremony will be held Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Rochester’s historic City Hall, itself an award-winning example of adaptive reuse.
