The Dana Crawford and State Honor Award Celebration is Colorado’s premiere statewide historic preservation awards event honoring the individuals and organizations that have made a significant contribution toward preserving Colorado’s historic resources. The evening’s namesake, Dana Crawford, is a preservation pioneer who proved that saving historic buildings makes sense – both culturally and economically.

Starting in 1988, with the State Honor Awards, and adding the Dana Crawford Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation in 1990, Colorado Preservation, Inc. recognizes accomplishments in the area of preservation, rehabilitation, promotion, philanthropy and leadership.
