Doris Duke Historic Preservation Award

10 Sep 2021 | 06:00 pm

We are thrilled to announce that the restoration of the roof and the masonry of St. John’s has been selected as the 2021 institutional recipient of the Doris Duke Historic Preservation Award.

The Doris Duke Preservation Awards are a collaboration of the Newport Restoration Foundation and the City of Newport. The awards recognize and celebrate preservation, restoration, and rehabilitation projects that help protect the historic sites, landscapes, and overall character of Aquidneck Island. The award winners were chosen by a jury of representatives from the Newport Restoration Foundation, the City of Newport, and individuals involved in historic preservation at the local and state levels.

Due to COVID, this year’s award ceremony will take place virtually; however, St. John’s will host a live-streaming event in the church on Sept. 10th from 6:00-6:30. We hope you join us in celebration of this recognition!

If you would like to view the live stream from the comfort of your own home, you may do so by RSVP on the Newport Restoration Foundation’s event registration page here.
