New season starts for Golden Hammer Awards

April 13th, 2014 in News

Seven years ago, the Historic City of Jefferson introduced the Golden Hammer Award to promote private ventures to preserve the city historic architecture and neighborhoods.

Anyone may nominate a home or business, older than 50 years, which has received significant renovation or restoration in the last five years.

A total of 35 awards have been given, including a front yard sign and a trophy with a golden hammer.

Last year's selections included the Nelson and Gertrude Burch House 115 W. Atchison St., renovated by Michael and Laura Ward; 616-618 E. High St., renovated by the Darryl and Connie Hubble; Scuba Adventure, owned by Jeff Adams; 119 Forest Hill, owned by Pat MacFarlane; and 938 Fairmount, owned by Jameson Morrow and Sally Owens.

All past recipients are listed on the organization's webite.

A committee from the Historic City of Jefferson reviews the applications and makes the selection.

Nomination forms are available at Scruggs Lumber and the News Tribune, 210 Monroe St.
