Revitalization of older homes and neighborhoods is well under way in Jefferson City. The Historic City of Jefferson's fifth annual Golden Hammer awards will recognize six new projects in 2012.
The award's dual purpose is to congratulate owners who have invested in the revival of their property's original character and also to encourage others to take the same challenge.
Golden Hammer winners receive a miniature gold hammer trophy, a yard sign and a feature in the Jefferson City News Tribune.
"These homes and buildings give us a visual ambiance and a message of time and place," said coordinator Deedie Bedosky.
Nominations may be made by admirers and owners alike. Forms are available at www.historiccityofjefferson.org or at the News Tribune office, 210 Monroe St.
