Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards

For the past 26 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.
