2016 Preservation Awards Honor Craftsmanship, Rehabilitation and Sustainability

Cincinnati Preservation Association (CPA) presented 15 awards for local preservation excellence at its 52nd annual meeting on Sunday, November 13, 2016, at Pinecroft, the historic mansion of Powel Crosley, Jr. Two awards were in our neighborhood!

Belvedere Lobby Restoration: The exquisite painted finishes of the Belvedere Condominium lobby in North Avondale, including 12 oval-framed paintings by Cincinnati painter Herman Wessels, have been restored to their original splendor by Kris Lemmon of Deco Works.

Marion Hall: Built in late 1890s for auto dealer Frank Enger, this grand Beaux Arts Classical-style palazzo in North Avondale was later used by Xavier University as an honors dorm for male students. A top-to-bottom restoration by Ryan Messer and James Musuraca has restored the house and grounds to their original glory.
