Nomination Form

Historic Preservation Awards are given to recognize efforts that help preserve the historic visual character of Lake Forest through the preservation of historic structures in our community. Any building or structure in Lake Forest constructed at least fifty years ago is eligible to be nominated. Awards will be given for PRESERVATION, REHABILITATION, RESTORATION, and RECONSTRUCTION as defined by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the treatment of historic structures. New construction (In-fill)  in established neighborhoods and historic landscape restoration will also be considered for awards.

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 Awards. Any interested person, including the owner, a neighbor, a friend, or an admiring passerby may submit an entry. Nominations will not be considered without the owner's consent. Approval from the owner will be obtained by the Foundation for those entries submitted by one other than the owner.
