The presentation was made at the group’s annual meeting and banquet, which drew a record-setting 120 people to McClung Park’s indoor pavilion.

HCJ President Steve Veile presented the Preservation Pioneer Award to Monaco for the work he and his wife did to Vineyard Place, 1122 Moreau Drive, and the Monroe House, 237 E. High St.

“They were doing this in the ’60s and ’70s, well before most folks in Jefferson City were thinking about historic preservation,” Veile said.
