Celebrating historic preservation in Cambridge!
The Cambridge Preservation Awards Program, inaugurated by the Historical Commission in 1997, celebrates outstanding projects and notable individuals who conserve and protect the city’s architecture and history. Awards are given each May for projects completed within the previous calendar year. May is National Preservation Month.
Seven project categories are eligible for Cambridge Preservation Awards: restoration, rehabilitation, adaptive use, neighborhood conservation, landscape preservation, archaeology, and education/outreach. Awards are based on the following criteria:
- historical and architectural significance of the property,
- exceptional quality of the project,
- extent to which the project contributed to the preservation of the property,
- impact of the project on the preservation of the city’s historic resources
