The annual Historic Preservation Awards are given by the DCHS’s Historic Preservation Committee in partnership with Dubuque County Preservation Commission. The Committee is comprised of local volunteers who are interested in and knowledgeable about architecture, local history, and preservation. The Awards are announced as part of Dubuque Main Street’s Architecture Days programming,  and awards honor preservation work completed the year prior.

Nominations are closed for the Historic Preservation Awards. Winners will be listed on this site in May.

Historic properties in Dubuque County are eligible for the awards. To be considered, properties should be at least 50 years old and will be reviewed on criteria such as exterior construction materials; fenestration (windows); architectural details appropriate to the original design of the building; compatibility of the color scheme; alterations or additions to the structure; and appropriateness of the surrounding grounds to the original design of the building.

Property owners can nominate their own buildings, or nominations can be submitted on behalf of neighbors, friends, and others who have researched and thoughtfully restored an historic property. Past honorees have been located in Cascade, Dubuque, Dyersville, Farley, Sherrill, and other local communities.

The winning properties will be honored at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 10, at Millwork Marketplace in the Novelty Iron Works property from 5-7:30 p.m. as part of Dubuque Main Street’s annual Architecture Days celebration.

The deadline for nominations is February 12, 2018. Nominations should include the names of the owners, address, basic information about the restoration and historical significance of the property, and photos. Nominations can be submitted in paper format or electronically to: Cristin Waterbury, Dubuque County Historical Society, 350 East 3rd Street, Dubuque, Iowa 52001, or
