The 2018 Preservation Awards
The Chemung Canal Trust Company hosted the 2018 Historic Ithaca Preservation Awards on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. The “Station” building was a fitting site for the awards. Joseph O. Ciaschi, the namesake for the annual Preservation Excellence Award, rehabbed the building and ran it as The Station Restaurant for many years. More than 120 guests gathered to honor preservation projects and preservation professionals from throughout Tompkins County.
Nine amazing historic preservation projects, from fine stonework to whole-building rehabs, and two preservation advocates received awards. Ithaca and Tompkins County are so fortunate to have creative visionaries and exceptional artisans to preserve our built environment. And we owe so much to Joseph O. Ciaschi Preservation Excellence Award winner Leslie A. Chatterton for the many historic buildings she helped preserve as City of Ithaca Historic Preservation and Neighborhood Planner from 1986 to 2011.
