What's Current in Preservation at CPS . . .


CPS Awards Chair Kathy Altieri introduced winners in both the Residential and Commerical categories.

Residential Award recipients are Beverly and Dennis Marsh, who invested over a decade in restoration of their home at 325 15th St NW, Canton. Their hands-on effort has saved this beautiful house at the corner of Vassar Ave. from being converted into apartments.

Commercial Award recipient is Michael King for his restoration of the
Superior Apartments at 5th and Shorb NW. Mr. King has successfully restored numerous apartment and commercial spaces in downtown Canton. This 14-unit building has been enthusiastically occupied by young professionals wishing to live within walking distance of Canton's Art District.

Congratulations to these winners who are dedicated to the preservation of significant structures in the Canton area!
