Historic Preservation/Heritage Conservation

Essay Prize Question
What building or group of buildings in your community should be permanently maintained as evidence of your community's social and cultural history? Identify the building or group of buildings, explain its value, and describe how it is used today or could be used in the future.

The 2010 BERKELEY PRIZE is dedicated to those in the historic preservaton/heritage conservation movement throughout the world, who through their daily efforts remind professionals, the public, and students, that what we designate as historic is just as important as what is newly built and that the two can and should co-exist.
