SAVE OUR ARCHITECTURE LEAVING OUR HERITAGE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
On Saturday, May 20, 2017, residents from all over Broward County attended the 43rd Annual Broward County Pioneer Day presented by the County Historic Preservation Board in conjunction with the County Cultural Division and the City of Parkland. It was a day to honor Pioneers nominated by their respective municipalities and to celebrate the history of Broward County. In addition to the honoring of the Pioneers, four special awards were given to individuals and organizations. The Broward Trust for Historic Preservation is very proud and honored to have received the Stuart P. McIver Historian’s Award in recognition of our work and for contributing to the mission of the Broward County Historic Preservation Board. Trust President Steven Glassman accepted the award on behalf of the Board and membership and in his remarks stressed the importance of preserving physical manifestations of our history for future generations and celebrating that architecture. Steve also reiterated how historic preservation and development are not mutually exclusive and pointed out that many cities in our nation enjoy strong economic impacts from preservation efforts.
Congratulations to all of the Pioneers and Special Award recipients! The Trust was so pleased to be a part of an event that was so full of spirit and touching personal histories and deeply appreciates the efforts of the presenters in bringing back this event after a three-year hiatus.
