Local History Archive receives Friend of Preservation Award

by Lesley Drayton, Curator, Fort Collins Local History Archive

We have exciting news! The Local History Archive will be honored with the Friend of Preservation Award from the City of Fort Collins Landmark Preservation Commission! The Friend of Preservation Award is the highest preservation honor given annually by the Landmark Preservation Commission for exemplary work in preservation, rehabilitation, restoration or reconstruction done over the past year. The Local History Archive is receiving the award in recognition of “diligent work in preservation, education and promotion of our community’s history.”

We’re thrilled to receive this recognition for the work we do in the Archive. Our research assistants Pat Walker and Tiffani Righero, along with our trusty work-study students, our fantastic Archives intern, and our excellent group of volunteers make this place run…and they make it fun! We’re also thankful for the fantastic support we get from everyone at the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center. Everyone here works together to share with the community all the extensive resources we have that help tell the story of Fort Collins.

Finally, we greatly appreciate our many wonderful researchers who have been making use of the Local History Archive, and our generous donors of local historical artifacts who have made this resource available to the public.

The award will be presented to the Local History Archive by Fort Collins Mayor Hutchinson at 5:30 pm. on Tuesday, June 1, 2010, at City Hall West, 300 Laporte Avenue, prior to the City Council Meeting. This ceremony will also be televised on City Cable 14.
