Nominations accepted for preservation awards in Jefferson County; deadline is Feb. 28

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The Jefferson County Historical Society is seeking nominations for its annual historic preservation awards.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 28.

The 2013 award winners were the schooner Adventuress, Dean Nelson for maintaining Chimacum's Greenwood Cemetery, Steve and Chris Burns for the Solie House in Nordland, Shine author Bob Garten and Steve and Deborah Moriarty for the Phillips House in Port Townsend.

The awards honor individuals and organizations that restore original structures and preserve traditions that form the historic fabric of Jefferson County.

Two types of awards are presented. The Mary P. Johnson Award is given to historic structure projects that meet the Secretary of Interior's high standards for restoration.

Certificates of Appreciation are given for a variety of preservation and restoration projects and are not limited to physical structures.

All nominations will be reviewed by the historical society's historic preservation awards committee.

In the past, awards have gone to such major projects as restoring Port Townsend's City Hall and the Jefferson County Courthouse clock tower.

However, restoration of more modest buildings is considered to be equally important.

Non-structure awards have been presented to authors of local histories, museum exhibits, oral history projects, and individuals who have contributed to the preservation of Jefferson County history.

Nomination forms can be found on line at or may be picked up at the JCHS headquarters in historic City Hall, 540 Water St., Port Townsend.
