Wednesday, October 23, 2013 Brown Palace Hotel and Spa Preservation is progress, and the 2013 Historic Denver Annual Dinner & Awards Program highlighted the innovative collaborations, creative solutions and cutting-edge thinking of those who invest in the past as we build for the future. For the forty-third year Historic Denver gathered 400 of the city’s civic and business leaders, design professionals, respected craftsmen and local advocates to celebrate the people and projects that made preservation possible this year.
The 2011 community preservation award winners included Bromwell Elementary for outstanding architecture and preservation education, those who have cared for and maintained the Daniels & Fisher Tower, Denver Water for the stewardship and sensitive addition at the Einfeldt Pump Station, Shirley Kenneally for her efforts to protect her home, the Mary Holland House, and SlaterPaull Architects for the sustainable conversion and restoration of Engine House No. 5 at 19th and Blake.
Four individuals were acknowledged for their contributions to preservation. Larry D. Williams will receive the Ann Love Award. The late Councilwoman Carla Madison was the recipient of the Molly Brown Award, created to honor a woman who demonstrates Margaret Brown’s commitment to community. The Keystone Award, given for lifetime achievement in historic preservation, was awarded to Lane & Ellen Ittelson.
