2005 John Frye Historic Preservation Award

2005 John Frye Historic Preservation Award

On October 11, 2005, the first John Frye Historic Preservation Award was presented to the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum Board in recognition of its efforts to promote historic preservation in Washington County. In the County Commissioners' meeting that day Commissioners' President Greg Snook presented the award to John Barr and Marge Peters of the Heritage Museum Board of Directors. The award has been presented annually by the Historical Advisory Committee, but the name has been changed to honor local historian John Frye.
