The Nantucket Preservation Trust’s 2017 Preservation Awards program, now in its eleventh year, recognizes individuals and organizations for historic preservation, stewardship of island landmarks, sensitive landscape design associated with historic buildings, historical renovations, the promotion of traditional building methods, and for new construction that embodies the principles of the HDC and the guidelines outlined in Building with Nantucket in Mind. Nominees are reviewed by the Preservation Award committee and approved by the NPT board. Award recipients will be notified in late April and a public announcement made during Preservation Month in June via the Nantucket Preservation Trust website and advertisements in The Inquirer & Mirror. Award recipients will be honored at a private awards ceremony, on Thursday, June 29. By recognizing preservation projects and the work of individuals, property owners, design and construction professionals and organizations, the NPT hopes to encourage proper preservation work, broaden outreach to the community, and ensure the protection of Nantucket’s historic resources.
