• Historic Design Award—for a new building in the downtown area that complements the original historic buildings or enhances the Downtown Historic District area.
• Historic Commercial Building Award—for a building at least 50 years old in the downtown Historic District or on an Historic Site that restores, retains or preserves the building’s historical, cultural or architectural values.
• Historic House Award—for a home that is at least 50 years old that is an outstanding example of restoration and renovation. Exterior only.
