Each year, Historic Augusta recognizes property owners who have made significant contributions to the preservation, rehabilitation, and/or restoration of historic buildings and sites. Eligible properties must be located in Augusta, Richmond County or Columbia County, Georgia and must be at least 50 years old and/or a certifiable as a historic structure. The property must retain a high degree of historical integrity and must be currently occupied or have constructive plans in place for its use. Nominations may be made by the general public and awards are given out at the Annual Meeting typically held in November. Preservation Awards criteria include:
- Saving the property from an uncertain fate
- Preserving a formerly dilapidated historic structure through generally accepted restoration, or rehabilitation standards.
- Extensive repairs to the interior and/or exterior. Simply updating an interior, including kitchens and baths and redecorating, does not qualify a property for an award.
- Returning a structure to its original appearance with appropriate historic materials
