Historic Landmark Awards
 
Every year the Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society bestows Landmark Awards on residential and commercial buildings in and around our neighborhood. Sites are chosen for their historic or cultural significance, such as those identified with significant events or persons, or those embodying distinguishing characteristics of an architectural style or notable work of a master builder, designer or architect.
