Heritage Awards

Our annual Heritage Awards program celebrates the people who make preservation happen: dedicated homeowners, insightful architects, creative developers, visionary leaders.

Celebrating the best in Utah preservation

Preservation Utah began honoring individuals and groups with Heritage Awards, and one individual with the Lucybeth Rampton Lifetime Achievement Award, nearly thirty years ago.

Each award recipient represents a model that others can look to for meeting the challenges of preservation. As a group, the recipients represent the many and varied ways preservation is accomplished in our communities. They include exciting adaptive use projects, the tireless efforts of dedicated homeowners, threatened buildings that have been saved from destruction, and the lifetime efforts of a committed preservationist. Through this awards program, Preservation Utah congratulates our award recipients and thanks them for their contribution to preserving Utah's architectural heritage.
