Radnor Patch Column Nominated for Award

“From the Archives” is up for the Heritage Commission’s Annual Preservation Award.

“From the Archives”, a weekly column on Radnor Patch that features a photo and write-up of something historical in Radnor, has been nominated for the Heritage Commission’s Annual Preservation Award in the Publication category.

The Delaware County Historic Preservation Award recognizes outstanding achievements in restoration, preservation, and adaptive reuse of historic structures and sites within Delaware County.

See a list of past award-winners in Radnor Township here.

Awards are also given to individuals and organizations whose documentation of preservation efforts have significantly added to the knowledge base of Delaware County's past.

"From the Archives" is a weekly offering of a photograph from Radnor's past. Selected from the tens of thousands of photos in the Radnor Historical Society's archives, each gives a glimpse of Radnor's past life.

See all "From the Archives" columns here.

Greg Prichard of the Radnor Historical Society chooses the photographs and writes the text for the weekly column. He has previously been honored by this award in the Special Project category for his work on websites about local history.

According to Elaine Paul Schaefer, who made the nomination, the context of the weekly photo often relates to "an issue that is a modern, timely subject of discussion in our present-day community."

Schaefer also states in her nomination that because it is run on Radnor Patch, the column "reaches many younger, but curious, community members who, but for this column, would be very unlikely to proactively seek historic information about their region."

The deadline for Historic Preservation Award nominations is March 2.
