2021 Landmarks Illinois Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards Ceremony

October 22, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Duncan Manor

Join us for our 2021 Landmarks Illinois Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards. The evening celebration at the historic Davis Theater in Chicago will include an awards ceremony honoring the nine, 2021 preservation award-winning projects and the people who made them possible. A reception with food and beverage will follow. The awards ceremony will also be available as a virtual presentation to reach Landmarks Illinois’ broad base of constituents across Illinois.

In addition to celebrating the award-winners, the event will feature a special tribute to honor the memory and creative spirit of the late Richard H. Driehaus, Landmarks Illinois’ longtime partner in preservation. The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation has generously underwritten Landmarks Illinois’ annual preservation awards program for the past 27 years. One of the 2021 selected winners will receive the Richard H. Driehaus Legacy Award for Innovation, which will be announced at the award ceremony.

Of interest to Route 66 enthusiasts is the Award for Stewardship that is going to Duncan Manor in Towanda.
“Through passion and creativity, David and Randi Howell have restored the 1866 Italianate farmhouse on old Route 66 near Towanda, once listed on Landmarks Illinois’ Most Endangered Historic Places in Illinois. The couple revived the once inhabitable local landmark, creating a popular and iconic destination for tours, concerts, weddings and other community events.”
