2019 Historic Preservation Awards



In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19, Historic Kansas City has reviewed our upcoming events schedule and in light of the recent ban, by the Mayor’s office, on large-scale events in Kansas City, we have decided to postpone the March 26th Historic Preservation awards event.

Know that this is not an easy decision. However, our overriding concern is for the health and safety of our community. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine a future reliable date for hosting the event.
Please continue to watch our events page, our social media channels and our email communications for announcements. Take care and be safe.

Historic Kansas City is very pleased to be hosting our annual Preservation Awards on Thursday, March 26th, 2020 at the Temple.  The Preservation Awards highlight numerous historic preservation efforts that occurred in the Kansas City area in the year 2019. HKC feels that the long-term quality and character of a community is directly related to its willingness to identify, protect, and enhance those historic places that define and differentiate it. That is why we host the Preservation Awards, in order to celebrate and bring awareness to those companies and individuals who help preserve these unique historic places for future generations.
