2013 Preservation Awards
November 10, 2013 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PMFree
Rochester’s historic City Hall will once again host the special presentation of this year’s Landmark Society Preservation Awards. Built between 1885 and 1889 as the Federal Court House and Post Office, the spectacular Richardsonian Romanesque landmark located downtown at 30 Church Street was restored in the late 1970s after many years of neglect and re-opened in 1978 as the new City Hall. The effort to revitalize this once-vacant building received major support and guidance from The Landmark Society throughout this challenging and monumental project. In 2012, City Hall’s restoration of the sandstone walls, detailing and slate roof received the Barber Conable Award for large-scale rehabilitation.
The Awards are given to individuals and organizations in our nine-county area who have made outstanding efforts in the preservation of their homes, historic properties, and landscapes.
Refreshments will be served.
Free and open to the public. No reservations necessary.
