The Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission's annual State Historic Preservation Awards honor individuals, organizations, and projects for their contributions to the preservation of Rhode Island's historic resources.

Three awards pay tribute to individuals who exemplify Rhode Islanders' commitment to historic preservation. They are the highest honors which the Commission bestows.

The Antoinette F. Downing Award for Volunteer Service to Preservation honors Rhode Island's founding Commission Chairman. The Frederick C. Williamson Award for Professional Leadership in Preservation honors our long-term State Historic Preservation Officer. And the John H. Chafee Award for Public Service in Preservation honors Rhode Island governor, United States Senator, and friend of historic preservation and the natural environment.
