The Cherokee County Historical Society recognizes businesses and individuals for their achievement in historic preservation at the annual Preservation Awards Banquet, which will be at the Northside Hospital-Cherokee Conference Center at the Bluffs on March 21.
The awards are given to encourage and educate the community about the benefits of protecting Cherokee County’s unique history.
Properties are judged by the attention given to preserving historic features, and maintaining the integrity of initial design.
