2017 Centennial Historic Preservation Award

Beginning in 1993, the Wayne County Historical Society has recognized historic preservation projects that demonstrate considerable effort and/or financial commitment towards the preservation of buildings or specific objects. In past years, buildings, objects, and projects were nominated by peers and WCHS Trustees made the awards to the most worthy projects based on following as closely as possible the US Department of Interior’s Guidelines for Historic Preservation.

The 100th Anniversary year of the Wayne County Historical Society is 2017 and the Historic Preservation Award will be selected in a different way. All members of the community will have a chance to vote for their favorite, most beloved and significant building in Wayne County. You may vote as often as you like, and you are able to vote four different ways:

Please select your choice for the “2017 Centennial Historic Preservation Award” from the ballot below and drop it off or mail it to WCHS, 810 Main Street, Honesdale, PA. Vote as often as you would like through August 31; each vote will be counted and the results will be tallied on September 1st to determine the Centennial Historic Preservation Award winner. More than one (1) vote per ballot will void your ballot. The winner will be announced and honored during the Centennial Historic Preservation Award Ceremony on Saturday, October 21, 2017 to be held at the Main Museum.
