Bristol Virginia Historic Preservation Award Program Seeks Nominations

January 30, 2023

The Historic Preservation Award Committee for the City of Bristol, Virginia, is seeking nominations for the 2023 Historic Preservation Award. The deadline for nominations is March 31, 2023.

The purpose of the award program is to recognize and honor property owners and developers who engage in preservation and maintenance projects on properties located in the City of Bristol, Virginia. The committee 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 for a Citywide Historic Preservation Award nomination.

“Restoration and long-term maintenance of residential and commercial properties encourages revitalization, and preserves the rich history, culture, and landscape of our city,” according to Catherine Brillhart, Committee Chair.

The 2023 award recipients will be recognized in May 2023.

Nomination forms may be printed and mailed to City of Bristol, Virginia, Community & Economic Development Department, 300 Lee Street, Bristol, Virginia 24201 or submitted directly online from the city’s website at www.bristolva.org. Self-nominations are accepted. Properties are selected based on exterior appearance only.
