Press release:

The Landmark Society of Genesee County will hold its annual Preservation Awards Dinner on May 11 at the St. James Episcopal Church 405 E. Main St., Batavia. The dinner will begin at 6 p.m. and the awards presentation will follow (at approximately 7).

Five buildings in Genesee County will be recognized this year.

“The five award winners this year show that preservation is alive and well in Genesee County. Not only are different towns of Genesee County represented, but also different types of styles. Preservation can come in many forms: restoration, adaptive reuse, and rehabilitation, for example. The goal is not only to pay homage to history but to recognize that communities which value preservation will become the healthy and vital communities of tomorrow,” explained Landmark Society President David Gann.

The Landmark Society of Genesee County is a nonprofit, volunteer-operated organization. Since 1965, The Landmark Society has encouraged local communities and individuals to work together to preserve our architectural heritage. Preservation, protection and improvement of the landmarks located throughout Genesee County are the objectives of this organization.
