On Friday afternoon, October 9, 2009, preservation enthusiasts gathered at the The Inn at Erlowest on Lake George to honor and celebrate the 14th Annual Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) Awards. Six awardees shared their stories of challenge and success, passion and purpose amongst a lively and engaged group of supporters and friends. In all of the awards, the stewardship committee seeks representative examples of long-term stewardship and committed preservation practice as well as sensitivity to the original function and period of each resource.
