Awards & Preservation Month Celebration




Historic Preservation Awards:

Let Us Celebrate New Waves in Old Ways - Announcing the 2018 Historic Preservation Awards! 

The City of Missoula Historic Preservation Commission is proudly recognizing individuals, projects, and organizations who have restored, rehab’d, or constructed new and historically compatible additions, and who have worked to enhance the character of Missoula's built environment. 

Can you think of a project or individual who has worked to better a property in Missoula? Notice a property go from slum to sharp? Lets keep this trend in action by celebrating those who have helped enhance Missoula's sense of place, and protect our historic fabric. 

The annual historic preservation awards will be held on May 3rd, 2018 (National Historic Preservation Month) during which award winners and their guests will be honored and treated to a catered awards celebration. 

Projects must have been completed within the past five years.

Submit your nomination by Wed, March 21st.
