Historic Augusta Inc., is seeking nominations for its 2013 Historic Preservation Awards to be given at the organization’s annual meeting Nov. 14.

The award program is designed to recognize significant contributions to the preservation, rehabilitation and restoration of buildings of historic, cultural and architectural value.

In order to be considered for an award, a property must be on or eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, either individually or as part of a historic district, and the project must be completed.

The preservation, rehabilitation or restoration of the building should have been completed within the last two years. Preference will be given to those projects which included major renovation work such as saving a building from an uncertain fate, returning a dilapidated structure into a viable resource, making extensive interior or exterior repairs, and returning a structure to its original appearance with appropriate historic materials.

To nominate a building, send an e-mail or write a letter to Historic Augusta including the following information, by Aug. 13: your name, address and telephone number, the building owner’s name, address and telephone number, the building name and address, the nature of the work that was performed, the project completion date, and why you feel it is worthy of a 2013 award. Please include photographs that support the nomination.

For more information, to check the National Register status of a building, or to nominate a property for a 2013 Historic Preservation Award, please contact Robyn Anderson by telephone at 706-724-0436, e-mail at robyn@historicaugusta.org or mail at P.O. Box 37, Augusta, GA 30903.
