The 2020 Historic Preservation Awards

Each year thousands of South Carolinians work to preserve the state’s legacy that is reflected in our historic buildings, structures, and sites. Since 1995, the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, Preservation South Carolina, and the Office of the Governor have recognized exceptional accomplishments in the preservation, rehabilitation, and interpretation of our architectural and cultural heritage with a series of statewide awards.

These efforts demonstrate the outstanding commitment to preserving South Carolina’s history; therefore the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, Preservation South Carolina, and the Office of the Governor have joined together to announce the 26th Annual South Carolina Historic Preservation Awards, recognizing exemplary work in historic preservation in South Carolina.

The selection panel that chooses the awards from the list of those submitted are:

  • A representative from the Office of the Governor
  • Preservation South Carolina Board President (or designee)
  • The Director of the SC Department of Archives and History (or designee)
