Cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres
This year’s nine award winners range from an advocacy group formed to save the
World’s Largest Catsup Bottle to a train depot in far southern Illinois to a one
hundred year old office building along Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. These winners
are a testament to the variety of architecture across the state and the people
working to preserve it.
Landmarks Illinois has been
assisted by a generous grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation to honor
individuals and organizations whose works demonstrate a commitment to historic
preservation. By honoring these individuals, organizations, projects and
programs, Landmarks Illinois and the Driehaus Foundation hope to inspire others
to take action to preserve, protect and promote historic resources.
