The Awards program has four categories; preservation, rehabilitation, restoration, and additions/new construction. The preservation category is for work that has been done to sustain the existing form, integrity, and materials of the historic property. Rehabilitation is for properties that has been repaired, altered, or for additions that preserve the features which convey its historical, cultural, archaeological, or architectural significance. The restoration category covers buildings that have had been restored to the original historic state by removal of features from other periods and reconstruction of missing features from the restoration period. Lastly, additions and new construction include new features to a historic property that are compatible and in character with the existing historic building and surrounding contributing historic resources.
