The AARCH Preservation Awards annually recognize projects which help revive the historic character of a building or structure, through restoration or adaptive reuse, as well as those that have been consistently cared for over time.

Last year’s honorees include:

Historic Saranac Lake for the Saranac Laboratory Museum

Railway Historical Society of Northern New York for the Croghan Depot

Eli Schwartzberg for the former Willsboro School, now Champlain Valley Senior Community

Indian Lake Theater, Inc. for the Indian Lake Theater

Ike Wolgin for the former Fanita Boathouse, now Lake George Kayak Company

Adirondack Railway Preservation Society for the Remsen to Lake Placid rail corridor

This year’s awards ceremony and luncheon will be held September 25th on the Horicon, a National Register-listed tour boat operated by Shoreline Cruises in Lake George Village.

To nominate a project, for more information on the program, or for a list of past awardees, visit or contact Program Director Kate Ritter at (518) 834-9328.

Adirondack Architectural Heritage is the nonprofit historic preservation organization for New York State’s Adirondack Park.  AARCH was formed in 1990 with a mission to promote better public understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of the Adirondacks’ unique and diverse architectural heritage.
