DC Preservation League 45th Anniversary Celebration and Awards

The DCPL Celebrated 45 Years of Preservation Advocacy in the District of Columbia. They are the only citywide nonprofit solely dedicated to the preservation, protection, and enhancement of Washington’s historic and built environment. Founded in 1971 as Don’t Tear It Down to save the Old Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue, DCPL has worked diligently to ensure that preservation remains an economic force for the city’s neighborhoods and historic downtown.

Awards were handed out to many esteemed groups which helped to preserve, rebuild, renovate, and restore historical buildings around DC. The celebration was a creative black tie affair allowing the attendees to show off their most creative fancy fashion. Food and drinks were enjoyed by all as a live blues band took the stage.
