A panel of five judges will recognize five Greenwich building projects as examples of rehabilitation and recycling of Greenwich buildings. The winners of these first ever Greenwich Preservation Awards will be honored at a ceremony Tuesday hosted by the Greeenwich Historical Society.
"The winners clearly illustrate that the preservation of structures from all periods contributes greatly to the Greenwich community," said John Morris Dixon, committee chairman and jury member for the Greenwich Preservation Awards.
"These fine instances of restoration, protection and recycling can serve as examples for other historic properties in Greenwich and elsewhere."
The organizations responsible for the reconstruction and restoration will be honored at a ceremony, with a cocktail reception, set for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, at the Indian Harbor Yacht Club.
