Palmerston landmarks nominated for 2018 ACO Heritage Award

PALMERSTON - The Palmerston Railway Museum and Palmerston Lions Heritage Park have been nominated for a prestigious heritage award.

Minto Mayor George Bridge announced at the Oct. 2 council meeting the facilities have been nominated for an Architectural Conservancy of Ontario (ACO) Heritage Award.

This is the 12th year for the awards, which “honour great work being done across Ontario by activists, architects, building owners, visionaries, craftspeople, all working to preserve Ontario’s heritage buildings and landscapes,” states an email from the ACO to Palmerston Lions Club president Bob Lacombe.

The email states, “Your nominations are for the Margaret and Nicholas Hill Cultural Heritage Landscape Award for your hard work and leadership in restoring and sharing these wonderful heritage assets in Palmerston.”

Also nominated in the category are Belle Vue Conservancy in Amherstburg and The Friends of Allan Gardens and Leaside Matters in Toronto. “I think we have a chance of winning this and we’re up against all these Toronto people, so it’s really kind of neat,” said Bridge.

He noted a local delegation will attend the ACO Heritage Awards ceremony in Toronto on Oct. 11.
