The Awards showcase projects that preserve, restore or reuse historic property in a way that enhances its architectural character.

AAPS Preservaton Award Plaque

The awards debuted in 1998, when AAPS honored Alameda’s renovated City Hall, three restored Victorians, and two rejuvenated commercial buildings. Examples of other award recipients are the U.S.S. Hornet aircraft carrier museum, Kofman Auditorium in the Historic Alameda High School, the Delanoy Building, the Masonic Temple, the Neptune Palace Hotel, the Alameda Theatre, and the Clamp Swing building. Many residential properties have also been honored, including homes which have removed asbestos or vinyl siding and restored the original siding, millwork and windows. For a list of all recipients since 2002, see the page Record of Preservation Award Winners.
