The May 2013 Cambridge Preservation Awards Program will honor projects completed between January and December 2012. Residents and property owners, neighbors and visitors, architects and contractors are invited to nominate projects that contribute to the preservation of Cambridge’s historic character and its built environment.

Projects can involve restoration, rehabilitation, adaptive use, neighborhood conservation, landscape preservation, archaeology, or preservation education, and may involve private homes, institutional buildings, or commercial and industrial properties. Since 1997, the Cambridge Historical Commission has annually celebrated outstanding contributions to historic preservation throughout the city.
