2018 Preservation Award Winners

2018 Preservation Awards

We're excited to announce the recipients of our 2018 Preservation Awards. Each May, in conjunction with National Preservation Month, we present these awards to celebrate the accomplishments of local property owners; professionals in the fields of architecture, construction and design; and leaders who champion preservation as an opportunity to support the Midlands’ economy and culture. These awards, presented on Thursday, May 3 at our annual Preservation Awards Luncheon, encourage and promote the importance of local preservation.

“Congratulations to our 2018 Preservation Award recipients for leading the way in preserving Columbia’s built history for future generations,” said Robin Waites, Historic Columbia’s executive director. “While we can use our research and experience to craft the case for preservation – these leaders in preservation are the ones who provide the financial, creative and sweat equity to make the advocacy worth it.”

Historic Columbia honored the following recipients in the areas of Preservation Leadership, Preservation/Restoration, Adaptive Use and New Construction in a Historic Context. See photos of this year's award winning projects.
