Nominations being accepted for Historic Preservation Awards

February 23, 2021

The deadline for nominations has been extended to April 15 due to the pandemic.

Nominations are being accepted for the 2021 Historic Preservation Awards for the City of Bristol, Virginia. The purpose of the award program is to recognize and honor property owners and developers who engage in preservation projects on properties located in the City of Bristol, Virginia. The city plans to award one property in each of the five historic districts: Euclid Avenue Historic District, Solar Hill Historic District, Virginia Hill Historic District, Bristol Warehouse Historic District and Bristol Downtown Commercial Historic District. Properties located outside of these historic districts, but within the city limits, are eligible to be nominated for a citywide Historic Preservation Award.

“Restoration and long-term maintenance of residential and commercial properties encourages community revitalization and preserves the rich history and charming landscape of our city,” according to Catherine Brillhart, Committee Chair. The 2021 award recipients will be recognized in May 2021. Nomination forms may be downloaded and mailed or submitted directly online from the city’s website at www.bristolva.org. The deadline for nominations, including self-nominations, is March 31. Properties are selected based on exterior appearance only.
