Preservation Long Island’s biennial Preservation Awards recognize individuals, organizations, and projects that demonstrate extraordinary achievement in fields related to historic preservation on Long Island.

This year’s five awards represent a variety of successful historic preservation efforts that prevailed in the face of significant challenges–from serious structural damage to obtaining major grant funding and mobilizing broad community support to achieve local preservation goals. Never say never!

Preservation Long Island has partnered with Chris Kretz of The Long Island History Project to celebrate this year’s awardees with a podcast series. We’ll be sharing a new podcast featuring each of our 2020 Preservation Awards every day this week (Monday, June 8 through Friday, June 12, 2020).
