Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation Hosts 44th Annual Preservation Awards

Community event celebrates achievements in local historic preservation


The Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation invites the public to the 44th Annual Historic Preservation Awards ceremony on Monday, June 3, at the award-winning Morton Theatre in downtown Athens on Washington Street. The program starts at 6:30 p.m., followed by a reception.

Part of ACHF's mission is to increase awareness of the value of historic resources to the Athens community. The annual awards play an important role in fulfilling that mission by highlighting the projects, and more importantly the people behind them, that keep the town's historic fabric vibrant. From awards for stewardship (long-term maintenance), to detailed rehabilitations of  significant historic resources, to publications and programs that enhance our knowledge of local history, the ceremony presents the breadth of preservation achievements taking place each and every year in Athens Clarke County.

The highlight of the ceremony is the striking before and after photos of significant rehabilitation projects and the stories behind these projects. In the labor of love that is historic preservation, there is always a story. Join the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation on June 3rd to celebrate the accomplishments of fellow Athenians.

ACHF extends thanks to preservation awards sponsor Jackson Spalding, and to the following annual sponsors: ., Barber Creek Design, Dalton Carpet One, E+E Architecture, Inc., ETL Construction Services, Georgia Power Company, Lindsay Transfer & Storage, Raymond James/Carson Advisory and Todd Emily.
