North Hill Presents Achievement Awards –

The North Hill Preservation Association was honored to present the following awards during our 45th Annual Meeting & Founders Day Celebration which was held on June 16th at the Pensacola Country Club:

Joyce Turner Award for Historic Preservation – Belinda and Andrew Russell

105 West Jackson Street began its life in 1889 as the very substantial barn, carriage house, and servants’ quarters for the Captain Dunwoody House behind it on Spring Street. Over the last 128 years, The Barn has been a residential home, a club, and several business firms once called it their home. Belinda and Andrew Russell have done simply an amazing restoration and made this into a lovely home to share with their family.












Edwin Marcellus Hacker, Jr. Award for Best Landscape & Garden –

Bessann & Gary Watson

Gary & Bessann Watson live at 1308 North Barcelona Street and their lawn and garden are always so beautiful. They have mastered the art of shade gardening beneath their majestic historic oak trees and the landscape is very indicative of turn of the century plants which would have been enjoyed in North Hill.

Architectural Review Board Information

Preservation Preserves Our History & Our Property Values

North Hill is on the National Registry of Historic Places, which is the official list of the Nation’s historic places and structures worthy of preservation.  As such, there are guidelines to the preservation and restoration of these historic structures.  The North Hill Preservation District is protected under Section 12-2-10 of the City of Pensacola Municipal Code.

Section 12_2_10_North_Hill_Section

Approved Color Palettes for North Hill – Victorian

Approved Color Palettes for North Hill – Arts and Crafts

ARB Application Form – Full Review

ARB Application Form – Abbreviated Review

ARB Application Form – Board for Board Replacement

As part of our preservation education and outreach initiatives, the Welcome Committee visits each new property owner in the district, giving them a Welcome Packet which contains a copy of the City’s Municipal Code, map of the district, contact info for Architectural Review information and copies of application forms, in addition to information about the neighborhood, our events and projects.

While the recognized neighborhood boundaries of the North Hill District are much larger, the boundaries of the area covered under the municipal code were established in the 1970’s by vote of the property owners and City Council. This may help you to understand why the boundary lines are irregular and do not include many, many historic structures. If your home is on a street with a “Brown” street sign, and included within the boundaries of this map, then ALL exterior restoration/ repair/ reconstruction and major landscape redesign, must be approved by the City’s Architectural Review Board.
