Pittsboro, NC – Preservation North Carolina has presented Chatham County with a major statewide award recognizing the rebuilding and restoration of the Chatham County Historic Courthouse. The project earned the 2015 Gertrude S. Carraway Award of Merit, which was presented at a ceremony last week.
Hobbs Architects in Pittsboro served as project architects for the courthouse, which was badly damaged by fire in March of 2010.
The Carraway Awards are presented each year to people and organizations demonstrating genuine commitment and leadership in the area of historic preservation. The awards are named for the late Dr. Gertrude S. Carraway, a noted New Bern historian and preservationist. No more than 12 awards are given each year.
Preservation North Carolina is a nonprofit founded in 1939 to promote and protect the buildings and landscapes of the state’s diverse heritage.
