April 29, 2022
The City of Dubuque’s Historic Preservation Commission will host the 20th Ken Kringle Historic Preservation Awards ceremony Tuesday, May 3, at 6 p.m. in the Five Flags Majestic Theatre. The event is open to the public to attend and features four restoration projects and one award for an individual for lifetime achievement.
The award program is named after the late Ken Kringle, known for his involvement with the Historic Preservation Commission as a member and Chairperson, President of the Bluff Street Neighborhood Association, resident of the Cathedral Historic District and member of the Old House Enthusiasts Club.
The award was created to acknowledge the best rehabilitation projects within the City of Dubuque. The 2022 Ken Kringle award winners are:
