Preservation Iowa 25-year old (1991) year old not-for profit organization committed to preservation advocacy across the entire state of Iowa. Our two most visible programs are Iowa’s Most Endangered and Preservation at its Best. These two programs work well together because being listed as Most Endangered oftentimes leads to awareness, a preservation effort and a high-quality, award winning project.
Each year at the Preserve Iowa Summit, Preservation Iowa proudly recognizes the winners of the Preservation at its Best program. The categories this year were:
Commercial [small] Commercial [large] Community
Sustainability in Preservation
We had many high-caliber applicants again this year. We want to commend all of the applicants including those who did not win awards, because all of you did something special for your communities and for the state of Iowa. So thank you to everyone who took on a preservation project.
Congratulations to the 2016 winners:
