Coalition to Save West-Park honored

Congratulations to the individuals and organizations honored last night by the Historic Districts Council at its 20th Annual Preservation Party and Grassroots Preservation Awards.

This year, the awards were especially close to our West Side heart.  Among the grassroots efforts honored was The Coalition to Save West-Park Presbyterian Church!  Two decades of perseverance paid off on May 12, 2010, when the City Council voted to affirm the Individual Landmark designation of West-Park. 

Now the real work of preserving this extraordinary building can begin...  Click here to learn more.

Again, our sincerest thanks to all those whose dedication to West-Park made this communal victory a reality!
