Centerbrook Meeting House, the winner of 2012 Annual Preservation Award of Essex Historical Society

Essex Historical Society is devoted to the preservation of buildings, especially in the interest of protecting our town’s unique historical nature. EHS is looking for this year’s Preservation Award winner and we need your help!

If you know of a building that has been renovated or preserved you can nominate it for the Preservation Award. Past years’ winners have been the Ivoryton Library (2011) and the Centerbrook Meetinghouse (2012). Do you know the building that should be honored this year? Please, cast your vote!

The building can be either commercial or residential. The building needs to have been erected prior to 1936. The historic character of the original structure has to have been preserved in keeping with the period it was initially constructed.

From May 1 to May 31 all residents can submit votes for the structure of their choosing at the post offices in Essex, Ivoryton and Centerbrook. The votes will be tallied and the award will be presented  the Essex Historical Society’s Annual Strawberry Social on June 23, 2013 at 1 pm, at Pratt House in Essex.
