The C. Emlen Urban Awards Dinner and Annual Meeting is a time to come together as a community to honor and celebrate those who have made a large commitment to preservation in Lancaster County.

The Trust’s mission is to educate and advocate for the preservation of significant Lancaster County historic sites and architecture. Each year, the Trust recognizes projects that reflect our mission and individuals who strive to achieve this mission, by honoring them at our Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner.
