MARIETTA - May is National Historic Preservation Month. To celebrate, Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, Inc. will honor local preservation projects during a Preservation Awards Ceremony and Reception at the William Root House on May 27th. The event will include live music and refreshments. Cobb Landmarks is a private nonprofit organization that advocates for the preservation of Cobb's historic structures and sites. When historic buildings are torn down or allowed to deteriorate, a part of the past disappears forever. When that happens, individuals lose the opportunity to have physical contact with the places where the region’s identity was established and the community's character was shaped. Cobb Landmarks Preservation Awards are a way to recognize individuals, local governments, and organizations who have contributed to the preservation of Cobb County's history. Support for the event comes from Cobb Landmarks Trustees and the Marietta Historic Preservation Commission. 

WHAT: Cobb Landmarks Annual Preservation Awards

WHEN: May 20, 2023   5:00pm

WHERE: William Root House | 80 N Marietta Parkway, NW | Marietta, GA 30060

COST: Free

ABOUT COBB LANDMARKS: Since its founding in 1974, Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, Inc. has succeeded in preserving and protecting some of Cobb’s most historically relevant sites.
