2012 ACHF Awards Summary


The Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation held the 43rd Annual Preservation Awards and its annual meeting on Monday, June 4, 2012, at the historic Morton Theatre downtown. ACHF Executive Director Amy Kissane kicked off the Annual Meeting with the Year in Review and recognized incoming and outgoing board members. Following the group’s business meeting, Preservation Awards Chair Jennifer Lewis highlighted each award winner with a description of each project and a slide show presenting images that showed the improved properties before and after the work was done.

Each year ACHF recognizes property owners who have gone above and beyond in caring for and fixing up their historic properties by giving out preservation awards for outstanding historic rehabilitations, grassroots preservation, community revitalization, and stewardship. We also recognized outstanding publications and programs, and more. Since 1969 the Foundation has given out a total of over 300 awards at its annual spring meetings. Thanks to everyone who attended!
