The Chesler Group, Inc. receives 2009 Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award

The Chesler Group received the Preservation Merit Award for over 20 years of service as an advocate for, and practitioner of, preservation and adaptive use of the Cleveland area’s historic buildings and was among this year’s 11 recipients.

The Ohio Historic Preservation Office Awards have been presented annually since 1983 on the basis of nominations from throughout the state. Awards are presented in two categories: Public Education and Awareness, and Preservation Merit.

The Preservation Merit Award is for preserving Ohio’s prehistory, history, architecture, or culture. Eligible activities include restoring, rehabilitating, or otherwise preserving an important building or site, longtime stewardship of a property, promoting protective legislation, funding preservation projects, offering leadership, support, or service, and furthering preservation at the local, regional, or state level.

The Ohio Historic Preservation Office is Ohio’s official historic preservation agency. A part of the Ohio Historical Society, it identifies historic places in Ohio, nominates properties to the National Register of Historic Places, reviews federally-assisted projects for effects on Ohio’s historic, architectural, and archaeological resources, consults on the conservation of older buildings and sites, and offers educational programs and publications.
