ARCH Inc., the historic preservation non-profit organization serving Allen County and Northeast Indiana, invites everyone who knows of a historic building that has been successfully preserved in the past two years to nominate it for a 2020 ARCHie Award.

ARCH is accepting nominations for its annual award program that recognizes the preservation efforts of individuals, businesses and institutions in Fort Wayne and Allen County through Dec. 31, 2019. This year a new Outreach ARCHie Award will honor at least one worthy preservation project in the surrounding counties of Northeast Indiana.

ARCHies for outstanding single family, multifamily and commercial restoration projects as well as organizational and institutional projects may be awarded as worthy candidates are identified. Any nominated project must have had exterior restoration work that is visible to the general public, have been completed in the past two calendar years and be located in Allen County or one of the following counties of Northeast Indiana: Adams, Wells, Huntington, Wabash, Whitley, Kosciusko, Noble, DeKalb, Lagrange and Steuben.

ARCH has been presenting ARCHie Awards since 1977. The 2020 ARCHie Awards will be presented at a reception in May 2020.

An online nomination form is available on ARCH’s website archfw.org, and a paper form is available by calling the ARCH office at 260-426-5117.
