What do a creek-side tavern, sunken garden, mercantile/café, prison guard towers, and a study of a Mid-Century Modern architect have in common? All were recipients of Preservation Awards from The Landmark Society of Western New York in 2019.
Each 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 2020 Preservation Awards. Award suggestions are welcome from Monroe, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates counties.
Click HERE for a list of the award categories, along with descriptions and criteria for each award.
If you know anyone deserving of any of these awards, please email your suggestions to Cynthia Howk at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, June 1, 2020. The Awards Committee will begin reviewing submissions at its June meeting.

I would like to nominate the H.G. HOTCHKISS PEPPERMINT MUSEUM for a LANDMARK AWARD. Met I obtain the criteria for an award.
Thank you, Patricia Alena, Museum Director
The HG HOTCHKISS PEPPERMINT OIL FACTORY was given to the Lyons Heritage Society in 2011 to restore it as much as possible and make a viable museum. With help from our members and the community, this has become a reality. We are proud of the fact of saving this 1812 building and restoring it. The museum located on the Erie Canal has become a tourist destination point, especially with canal boaters and cyclists on the canal trail.
