Awards Program

cemeteryCall for Nominations for 2017 (19th Annual) Historic Preservation Awards

***Nominations due March 30, 2018***

Since 1999, Otsego 2000 has sponsored the annual Historic Preservation Awards for Otsego and Schoharie Counties. These awards recognize property owners, individuals, and craftspeople who have committed themselves to preserving our regional historic sites, landscapes and communities for future use and enjoyment. An independent jury of preservation experts reviews nominations for their commitment to preserving our architectural heritage and cultural landscapes. Download the 2017 HP Awards Nomination Form.


Nominated projects must have been completed between 2012 and 2017. Please note that anyone can nominate a project for consideration, including their own projects. Nominators are encouraged to call Otsego 2000 to review their nominations and ensure their eligibility.  Projects must adhere to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards of Rehabilitation.

Awardees will be honored at a ceremony in May, in conjunction with National Historic Preservation Month. The diverse group of award recipients over the years, including individuals with a life-long passion for preservation, rehabilitation-focused homeowners and many other special projects, reflects the value our community places on preserving our region’s past for the enjoyment of all – this is our way to say thank you!
