2018 Distinguished Home Awards

A big thanks to those who joined us for a reception honoring this years recipients of the Museum’s Distinguished Home Award.

The Museum first initiated this award in 2005, to recognize the contributions selected homes have made to preserving the heritage, character, streetscape, and personable feel of Lake Bluff. The criteria considered in selecting winners are: Heritage-culturally and/or historically significant property whose presence is considered to be crucial to the unique historic legacy of the Village of Lake Bluff; Preservation-historic structure that has been continually cared for and maintained respecting the original character of the structure; Restoration-historic structure that has been restored; Renovation-historic structure that has been restored with additions and changes; Adaptive Re-use-historic structure that has been changed from its original purpose; and Infill-new construction, in an historic setting, that complements the visual character of the Village and is indistinguishable as new.
