Nominations are now being accepted for the City of Bristol Tennessee’s 2023 Historic Preservation Awards, an annual program that recognizes property owners who have taken extraordinary steps to preserve the historical integrity of the City’s residential and commercial properties.
The deadline for nominations is Sept. 15 and winners will be recognized during an awards ceremony in October.
Created in 2018 by the City’s Community Development & Planning Department, the initiative recognizes preservation efforts within the City’s three National Register districts. These include the Bristol Downtown Commercial Historic District, the Fairmount Neighborhood Historic District, and the Holston Avenue Neighborhood Historic District. A city-wide award also is available to recognize a historic property located anywhere in the city.
The City’s Historic Preservation Awards Committee will review all applications and choose award winners based on the overall quality of work; the positive impact on the community and historic resources in Bristol; the historic quality of renovations, repairs, and additions; and the project’s ability to serve as an example for other historic preservations projects. Only the exterior of each property will be considered.
To nominate an eligible property, please complete the form available at www.bristoltn.org/preservation and include at least four and no more than eight photos of the property. Forms may be submitted electronically or hand delivered/mailed to the Department of Community Development & Planning, Ewell Easley Municipal Annex, 104 8th Street, Bristol, TN 37620.
