Highland Park Heritage Trust wins an Award!!!

HPHT won a Community Outreach Award from the Office of Historic Resources on Saturday, May 30th at the 2009 Citywide HPOZ (Historic Preservation Overlay Zone) Conference. The force behind such an honored award is our HPHT fold-out brochure, now soon-to-be in its 3rd printing! The informative and creative brochure was the result of hard work by the volunteers of the HPHT. Particular thanks goes to Nicole Possert, Janelle McGlothlin, Amy Inouye and Charly Kemp for their tireless efforts. There was excellent HPHT representation at the conference. Charlie Fisher, Tina Gulotta-Miller, Charles Miller and Justine Leong were all in attendance to accept the award on behalf of the HPHT.

Another win for our community was the Pisgah Village on Echo St. The project received a Rehabilitation Award.

Yeah for Highland Park!!!

The wonderful host of the conference was the Angelica Lutheran Church in the Pico-Union HPOZ. This beautiful Gothic Revival church was built by Swedish immigrants in 1925. They were gracious hosts to the 100+ Preservation-minded people on Saturday.
