2017 Preservation Awards
Thursday, May 11, 2017
Every year Historic Ithaca presents awards for sensitive restoration and preservation projects throughout Tompkins County. Since 1968 we have made more than 300 awards. In 2017, three barn rehabilitation projects received Awards of Merit, including the Strebel Planning Group’s barn in Varna, the Laughing Goat Fiber Farm barn in the Town of Ithaca, and the Centerline Farm barn in Dryden. On the Ithaca Commons, the Griffin Building, which houses Simeon’s Restaurant, won for its restoration after a devastating accident. Ithaca’s Stewart Park was recognized for the rebuilding of its Tea Pavilion. Several residential projects were honored for excellence in rehabilitation. Dryden Town Historical Society and Historic Ithaca volunteer Gina Prentiss received the Joseph O. Ciaschi Award for Preservation Excellence.
