Annual Meeting and Landmarks 2020
September 30, 5:30 pm–7:30 pm
HISTORY MATTERS! PRESERVATION MATTERS!
This year we will combine our Annual Landmarks recognition event with our Annual meeting.
Greenwich Historical Society has recognized local homes and other sites for their architectural or historical distinction for over three decades, promoting pride in ownership of historic properties and encouraging their preservation and adaptive use. On April 26, in keeping with this year’s centennial celebration of women’s suffrage, four Greenwich structures owned, designed or dedicated to trailblazing women will receive plaques in recognition of their design excellence and value in preserving Greenwich’s unique architectural heritage.
This year, we are proud to announce the David F. Ogilvy Preservation Award recognizing major accomplishments or lifetime work dedicated to the advancement of historic preservation in Greenwich. The inaugural award, posthumously honoring our long-time board member, supporter, and friend David Ogilvy, will be presented to his wife, Anne.
Among the homes honored these year are the stately fieldstone home that the late Mary Tyler Moore lived in with her husband, S. Robert Levine, M.D., the Innis Arden Cottage/Tod’s Point, designed by Katherine C. Budd, one of the first female architects in the United States; the Woolley-Huntzinger House, home of philanthropist Ada Huntzinger and her husband, Robert; and the YWCA, which is being recognized for its architectural distinctiveness and mission of empowering women and girls through leadership, innovative programming and services.
