Taliesin Preservation accepted the 2019 Trustees Emeritus Award for Historic Site Stewardship from the National Trust for Historic Preservation on October 11 in Denver, Colo. This national award was received at the PastForward Conference by Executive Director Carrie Rodamaker and Board Chair Ray Lipman.
This award from the National Trust recognizes a nonprofit organization that has demonstrated sustained and superlative achievement in historic preservation, management and programming at historic sites. Each year, an independent jury of national and international thought leaders from many disciplines select the recipients of the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation National Preservation Awards. The jury members look for historic preservation projects of all sizes and scale that involve innovated approaches, inclusive community outreach, demonstrative economic impact and cultural programs that can serve as inspiration to others in the field.
