2021 Chatham Preservation Awards

2021 will mark the 17th anniversary of the Chatham Preservation Awards program. The Historical Commission, Historic Business District, and the Historical Society are sponsors of this program to honor the sensitive renovation, restoration, and preservation of Chatham’s historic structures.

Together we recognize the good work that can be accomplished in meeting modern living requirements while respecting the historic “Sense of Place by the Sea”, to quote Nancy Barr, that Chatham offers.

We did not hold a ceremony in 2020 but this year, due to COVID precautions, we will conduct a virtual awards ceremony to honor the five 2020 and 2021 Preservation Award Winners. This event will take place on Zoom for honorees and their guests, but due to capacity limitations on Zoom, the event will be live-streamed on Facebook for other invited guests and the general public. You do not need to have a Facebook account in order to view the livestream.

 On Sunday, May 16, 2021 ♦ 3:00 to 4:30 pm
