AARCH Awards

The AARCH Annual Awards Program recognizes exemplary historic preservation work throughout the Adirondack region.

For over 20 years, our annual awards program has recognized sensitive restoration, rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of historic structures that are consistent with our mission of long-term stewardship.  The awards honor the organizations, businesses, and individuals who, through these projects, make the Adirondacks better places to live, work, and visit.
