Historic Madison, Inc. is accepting nominations for the 2014 Dorothy Inglis Reindollar Preservation Award.

The award was started in 2000 to recognize preservation or restoration accomplishments occurring within Madison and Jefferson County.

The award recognizes an individual, project, corporation or organization that has made outstanding contributions to the community while embracing preservation techniques, resulting in making the community a better place to live, work, play and raise a family.

Last year's award went to Gary Valen and Betsy Lyman for their restoration work on the Fairmount House, a 19th century Queen Anne-style home at 1050 Michigan Road.

Anyone interested in preservation would be honored to be mentioned in the same breath with Dottie Reindollar.

Mrs. Reindollar was a Madison businesswoman, City Council member, involved in tourism and downtown development, devoted full time to volunteerism, loved her community and perhaps most of all was an active preservationist. She served on the Board of Directors of Historic Madison, Inc. from 1981 until 1994 and was inducted into the Historic Madison, Inc. Council. She was a founding member of Historic Eleutherian College, Inc. in Lancaster and active in the preservation of this National Historic Landmark property.

To nominate an individual, organization or project you must complete an official nomination form, write a description (900 words or less) of the nominee and attach supporting material (no more than 12 items.) These items may include brochures, news items, photographs, slides, and other media accounts, and letters of support (no more than five).

The award winner will be announced at the HMI annual preservation gala on May 30 at the Shrewsbury-Windle House.

Nomination forms are available at the administrative offices of Historic Madison, Inc. 500 West St.; Madison City Hall, 101 W. Main St.; The Madison Courier, 310 West St., and the Madison Area Convention Visitors' Bureau, 601 W. First St. All nominations must be received before 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 23.
