The North Hill Preservation Association was honored to present the following awards during our Annual Meeting & Founders Day Celebration which was held on June 19th at the Pensacola Country Club:

Winner of the Joyce Turner Award for Historic Preservation – 

Peter & Ellen Schoor  for the restoration of their Bungalow style home at 317 West DeSoto Street which was built in 1921 by W.A. Leonard for the H.B. McEwen Family. The Schoor’s have done an excellent job in restoring this lovely home using period details and craftsmanship.

Winner of the Edwin Marcellus Hacker, Jr. Award for Outstanding Lawn & Garden –  
Ken Mitchell 
for his outstanding work at 301 West Gonzalez Street. This lovely Mediterranean Revival home was built in 1927 for Marguerite Turner by Charles H. Turner, the builder of this, and many other fine historic structures in North Hill and Downtown Pensacola. Ken has recently gone to great lengths to accent his award winning landscape and garden with a new courtyard wall out of brick that exactly matches the original brick of the home, and has added authentic gas lamps which highlight the beauty of this fine home.

Special thanks to our generous Turner Award sponsors, J.D. Hayward for the photography, and Jean Russ of Creative House, for the framing of our Turner Award.
