EHS needs your help!
Essex Historical Society is devoted to the preservation of buildings, especially in the interest of protecting our town's unique historical nature. EHS is looking for this year's Preservation Award winner and we need your help! If you know of a building that has been renovated or preserved you can nominate it for the Preservation Award. Past years' winners have been the Ivoryton Library (2011) and the Centerbrook Meetinghouse (2012). Do you know the building that should be honored this year? Please, let us know!
-The building can be either commercial or residential
-The building needs to have been erected prior to 1936
-The historic character of the original structure has to have been preserved in keeping with the period it
was initially constructed
From May 1 to May 31 all residents can submit votes for the structure of their choosing at the post offices in Essex, Ivoryton and Centerbrook. You can also VOTE ONLINE! The votes will be tallied and the award will be presented the Essex Historical Society's Annual Strawberry Social on June 23, 2013 at 1 pm, at Pratt House in Essex.
Everyone’s invited to the EHS Membership Party! Members, bring your friends and your friends’ friends. Non-members, don’t be shy ? stop by! If you love Essex, history or both, come join in on the fun; more is always merrier. We will be celebrating our community and springtime in Essex at the Pratt House on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 4:00 pm.
