VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  The Valdosta Historic Preservation Commission is honoring those dedicated to preserving historic buildings.

Awards range from large-scale rehabilitation or restoration projects to new construction that complements the architecture of the historic district.

The Converse Dalton Ferrell house on Patterson Street was one of last year's winners.

Valdosta's historic preservation planner says historic buildings give the city it's unique character.

"It really provides Valdosta with a unique sense of place and gives us that special unique distinctive flavor that no other city has," said Valdosta Historic Preservation Planner Emily Foster.

Projects in the city's historic district that have been completed in the last three years can enter.

The deadline to apply is April first. Click here for more information.
