DSC_0237At an evening award ceremony on October 17, Alhambra Preservation Group will present its 2013 Heritage Home Awards to the owners of four distinguished Alhambra homes. The event will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the Civic Center Library, 101 South First Street and is free to the public.  All are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served and ample free parking is available in the library’s underground parking structure.

The 2013 Heritage Home Awards will mark the fifth year of this program, which recognizes homeowners who have restored or maintained their older, historic homes in a manner that is sensitive to their architectural period and style and that recognizes the value of these properties to the community at large.

The annual Heritage Home Awards presentation is a popular and well-attended event.  Each of the homes is showcased in an audio-visual presentation that is both educational and inspiring, offering both exterior and interior views of some of Alhambra’s extraordinary historic housing stock, along with insights into the history and context of each of the homes.  APG President, Chris Olson, described the event as, “a virtual home tour, without the walking — or the price of a ticket!  It’s a great deal and it’s always a fun evening.”

Alhambra Preservation Group was founded in 2003 by residents eager to promote and protect Alhambra’s rich and historic architectural heritage. To learn more about APG or this upcoming event, please follow us on Facebook or call (626) 755-3467.
