Griffin Awards

Each year, PSABC presents the Griffin Awards for Historic Preservation.  Projects from Buncombe County that have been completeled within the last 24 months, or thos that are deemed 90% complete may apply in one of the following award categories.

    1. Restoration- Projects that accurately depict
      the form, features, and character of a property as it appeared at a
      particular period of time.
      Restoration may entail removal of features from other periods of
      the building’s history and reconstruction of missing features from the
      restoration period.  It may include
      limited and sensitive upgrading of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing
      systems and other code-required work to make the property functional
    2. Rehab – Projects that allow for newer
      compatible use of a historic building through repair, alteration, and/or
      additions while preserving portions or features of the building which
      convey its historical, cultural, or architectural values.  Changes that achieve a false sense of
      historical development over time will not be considered.
    3. Adaptive Re-use – Projects that adapt a historic
      building for a purpose other than what was originally intended while
      preserving portions or features of the building which convey its
      historical, cultural, or architectural values
    4. Research

      Preservation Education Award  Recognizing excellence in communicating the value of historic
      preservation to the public including: exemplary historical research,
      publication, oral history initiative, and the development
