Announcing Manchester’s Annual Historic Preservation Awards

Published on April 03, 2024


The Cheney Brothers National Historic Landmark District Commission 

The Cheney Brothers Historic Landmark District Commission recognizes property owners who have improved their property in a manner that preserves its historic value and character. Through their example, these owners show we can enhance the present and future of Manchester without discarding its past.

The Commission wishes to recognize property owners who have actively maintained or rehabilitated a building in a manner that respects and preserves that building’s historic architectural integrity and character. We invite you to participate in our Annual Historic Preservation Awards Program.

The building that is being nominated must be at least 50 years old. Buildings which are identified as contributing properties in any of Manchester’s National Register of Historic Districts will receive additional consideration.

The nominated property should exhibit efforts to preserve or restore architectural features and characters emblematic of the original architectural style and construction of the building. Any work should have been completed within the past five years. Nominations are due April 30, 2024.

An Awards ceremony will be held June 26 at 5:30 pm at the Chamber of Commerce.

Nomination forms can be obtained by contacting AnneMarie Boyle at Manchester’s Planning & Economic Development office at Lincoln Center, 494 Main Street, (860) 647-3044 or via email at
