The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota recently presented 14 projects and individuals from across the state with a Minnesota Preservation Award, and the New Ulm Retail Development Corporation was among those honored. The Minnesota Preservation Awards recognize significant achievement in historic preservation statewide and celebrate those who have chosen to sustainably reuse and reinvest in our existing built resources. More than 50 nominations were received this year, representing everything from small, community-led projects to large-scale, high-profile rehabilitation efforts. The New Ulm Retail Development Corporation received a Main Street Four-Point Award for the protection and preservation of historic resources, and was also honored for its “& More” events that added several family-friendly forms of entertainment to the annual Oktoberfest celebration. New Ulm Retail Development Corporation Director Barbara Marti accepted the award.
