The Landmark Society’s 2012 Preservation Awards will be presented this year at a special event on Sunday, November 4 at 3:00 p.m. in Rochester’s historic City Hall, the spectacular Richardsonian Romanesque landmark located downtown at 30 Church Street. The Awards are given each year to individuals and organizations in our nine-county area who have made outstanding efforts in the preservation of their homes, historic properties, and landscapes. In anticipation of this week’s Awards Ceremony, over the next few days we’ll be featuring some of this year’s award winners.
The Historic Home Award is given to owners of private residences for their continued care of and commitment to the preservation of an architecturally significant house over a minimum of seven years.
9010 Routes 5 & 20
Hamlet of W. Bloomfield, Livingston County
Owners: Todd and Alicia Campbell
This handsome, mid-19th-century Greek Revival house is one of the most significant residences in the W. Bloomfield hamlet. Prominently located on the north side of Routes 5 & 20, it has been the on-going restoration project of the Campbells for over 15 years. Through careful planning and exceptional tenacity, the Campbells have acquired many of the technical skills, themselves, which they have used to carry out even the most challenging aspects of this restoration. In addition to their historic house they recently purchased the vacant cobblestone store just to the west of their property. As with their home, they are now restoring this signature commercial building themselves.
