“It’s an honor to have one of America’s foremost architects in preservation share his insights at our annual event,” said Robin Kencel, chairman of this year’s Landmark Recognition Program. “Mr. Prial’s stewardship and commitment to the preservation of significant historical and cultural landmarks will be an inspiration for maintaining our unique and cherished heritage here in Greenwich.”
The Landmark Recognition Program reception takes place at the Greenwich Country Club, Sunday, April 17 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. Click for details and reservations.
The Landmark Recognition Program was begun in 1987 by the Greenwich Historical Society. Originally known as “Signs of the Times,” its purpose is to inspire the public to connect personally with Greenwich’s past through the recognition of architecturally noteworthy structures and thereby to encourage their preservation.
Nearly 300 homes, commercial buildings and sites have been recognized with plaques for depicting the town’s rich cultural heritage since the program’s inception. Each plaqued property is professionally researched, documented and preserved in the Historical Society’s Archive. Over the years, these documents have been popular with homeowners, researchers and scholars, as well as architects, builders and real estate professionals.
