Historic Kensington Armory was the scene of the first in-person Historic Preservation Awards since March 2019. Thanks to Mayor Tracey Furman and Town staff for hosting us, and to all attendees, nominators, judges, and other volunteers who collaborated in the event’s success. Special acclaim goes to co-producers Sandy Heiler and Kathie Mack for assembling recorded testimonies, photos, music, and presenters into a stunning movie that captures excellence in preservation and inspires others to undertake their own projects.
