SCHENECTADY -- The interior of Proctors, Schenectady's historic 1927 theater, is among the recipients of the Schenectady Heritage Foundation's 2018 Preservation Awards.
Marilyn Sassi, a local historian and Proctors' guide coordinator for tours of the theater, said the restoration work completed over 2017 was "meticulous in both historic accuracy and attention to detail. Traditional materials and techniques were utilized which further enhanced the restoration."
There were six winners named, including three private homes, a former school building and a commercial mixed building.
"This year's awards showcase the adaptive reuse of historic commercial and public buildings, and the preservation of residential architecture in the Stockade Historic District," said Gloria Kishton, president of the Schenectady Heritage Foundation.
The other recipients were structures at 204 Lafayette St., 18 Ingersoll Avenue, 118-120 North College St., 487 Nott Apartments and 119 Front St.
The winners will be recognized at the Foundation's annual ceremony next Thursday, May 24, at 4 p.m. in the Rotunda of City Hall.
The Schenectady Heritage Foundation is a volunteer, not-profit organization whose mission is to foster historic preservation in Schenectady County.
