PACNY receives 2020 New York State Historic Preservation Award!

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP) has awarded PACNY with a 2020 New York State Historic Preservation Award for Excellence in historic Preservation organizational Achievement!

After a tumultuous year in which our organization met a variety of challenges, PACNY is emerging with a renewed sense of purpose and energy. Despite the obstacles we have all faced, the support of our membership and fellow preservation advocates has kept us moving forward into the future (but with an eye to the past of course)!

In 2020, we held our first virtual awards ceremony on November 6, 2020 and awarded seven recipients for their work advancing historic preservation in Central New York. The entire presentation is available on our newly launched YouTube channel!

PACNY also served as a co-sponsor of the 2020 Statewide Preservation Conference, conducted virtually December 1-3, 2020 and attended by hundreds of preservationists throughout the northeastern United States.

2021 is shaping up to be an exciting year for PACNY, so please stay tuned to our social media platforms to get the latest updates!
