2022 Award Recipients

The 2022 award recipients demonstrate how preservation goes beyond historic buildings and landscapes to include our stories, our neighborhoods, and important lessons for our future.  This year our theme of Bringing Communities Together celebrates projects and people that have encouraged collaboration among the Commonwealth’s diverse constituents. 

The 2022 preservation award recipients will be honored during National Preservation Month in May. The celebration culminates on May 11 with a live event at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston.
