Montgomery Preservation and Save Our Seminary hosted the 2013 Historic Preservation Awards on March 28, 2014, at the National Park Seminary Ballroom in Forest Glen. This year we honored Peggy Erickson (outstanding leadership, creativity and public outreach on behalf of Montgomery County’s newly created Heritage Tourism initiative), the owners of Retirement Farm (stewardship), four residential restorations in Forest Glen and Takoma Park, Montgomery Modern Web Site (special achievement in education/media), and an addition to a historic residence in Kensington. The Montgomery Prize was presented to Clare Lise Kelly in recognition of her 25 years of exemplary professional and public service toward protecting County historic resources.
