The latest in a series of event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation gets underway Monday evening.
The historic Morton Theatre in downtown Athens is the setting for the 48th Annual Preservation Awards. The event recognizes local preservation efforts from the previous year. Committee Chair Jennifer Lewis says the event celebrates those doing real work when it comes to saving, rehabilitating and renewing historic buildings.
"This is the best make-over show you will ever see," Lewis said. "It is wonderful."
