City of Nacogdoches Presents Historic Preservation Award

NACOGDOCHES- Every year, the Nacogdoches Historic Landmark Preservation Committee honors a local preservationist who has helped to preserve historic Nacogdoches. By examining restoration efforts from the previous year, the committee chooses a project with exceptional preservation merit.

This year, Ken Lucas was awarded for his work at 723 Virginia Street, which included a new roof, brick driveway, restoration of original doors and windows and a new front porch. Before restoring the property, the house was uninhabitable and close to being torn down. Mayor Roger Van Horn had the pleasure of delivering the award to Mr. Lucas and thanking him for his part in preserving the community for future generations.
