The Historic Preservation Commission is accepting nominations for the 2019 Highland Park Historic Preservation Awards. These awards recognize and encourage projects to preserve, conserve and protect buildings, objects, landscapes or other artifacts of historical significance of the historic homes in Highland Park.  

The 2019 Historic Preservation Awards will recognize five categories: 
  1. Restoration
  2. Rehabilitation
  3. Adaptive Reuse
  4. Landscape Restoration
  5. New Construction.  
Winners in 2017 included the rehabilitation of the Second Empire-style house at 486 Ravine Drive, as well as a rehabilitation and addition of a Tudor-style home at  2426 Montgomery.  A 1915 Tudor Revival home at 186 Hazel was recognized for a thoughtful addition, and 330 Cedar Avenue received a Merit Award for modern upgrades that maintained the original design intent of a 1969 split-level home.  

Nomination forms are available at the Highland Park Public Library or here online:
