AAPS Announces New Historic Building Plaque Program

City Hall Plaque 2006 Preservation AwardCity Historic Monuments, Historic Buildings, and AAPS Preservation Award winners will be easier to locate with AAPS sponsored plaques.

We kicked off our program with a plaque commemorating City Hall with its original tower, the first of a series of plaques for City Monuments. Following that, the recipients of one of our 2006 Preservation Award ordered a plaque for their house. AAPS started awarding bronze plaques to Preservation Award winners in 2012; now 1989-2011 winners can purchase plaques for their buildings as well.
