Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards

LANDMARKS ILLINOIS RICHARD H. DRIEHAUS FOUNDATION PRESERVATION AWARDS

For the past 25 years, the Landmarks Illinois Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards has honored individuals, organizations, projects and programs whose work demonstrate a commitment to historic preservation. A generous grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation enables Landmarks Illinois to present nine awards annually in categories for stewardship, rehabilitation, restoration and advocacy along with the distinguished Project of the Year Award and the Joe Antunovich Award for Leadership. The awards ceremony is held each fall. The event includes a panel discussion with select award winners hosted by Landmarks Illinois’ chairman, an awards ceremony and a reception with all winners. The celebration is an inspiring evening that celebrates Illinois’ historic treasures while inspiring others to take action to preserve, protect and promote historic resources.
