The 50th Anniversary was marked with a luncheon in the Brice House, a colonial home recently acquired by the State of Maryland and managed by Historic Annapolis, attended by the principals involved in the establishing and maintaining of the Historic District and by the local politicians, celebrating the city, the Historic District, the U.S. Department of the Interior and the U.S. Naval Academy’s interrelationships.
Several Preservation Pioneers received awards for their work in the past, presented by Lisa Craig the City’s Historic District Coordinator, and Robert Clark, current president of Historic Annapolis Foundation. Each awardee received a compass in brass, engraved with ‘Preservation Pioneer 1965 -2015 A Landmark Celebration’ made by the local firm Weems and Plath. Pictured here is the compass given to Pickett Wright.
