Historic Preservation Day & Month


Every year in May, various organizations and municipalities across the country celebrate Preservation Month through events that promote historic places and heritage tourism, and that demonstrate the social and economic benefits of historic preservation. Preservation Month began as National Preservation Week in 1973 and in 2005, the National Trust for Historic Preservation extended the celebration to the entire month of May and declared it Preservation Month.

Boulder City Historic Preservation Award 2022


Boulder City Historic Preservation Award 2021  

The Boulder City Historic Preservation Committee granted the Boulder City Historic Preservation Award for 2021 to the Williams “Reclamation Employee House” at 507 Utah Street.

Located within the Boulder City Historic District as listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 507 Utah Street residence was selected for this award because:  

507 Utah - winner of the 2021 Historic Preservation Award

  • - Of the 26 single-family employee residences constructed by the Bureau of Reclamation in 1932, the property at 507 Utah retains the most of its original architectural design and materials and remains a contributing resource of the Boulder City Historic District. 
  • - The homeowner has taken great care to retain and preserve important character defining features such as the windows, front entry, and roof.  
  • - Alterations to the home are minimal which helps maintain the historic integrity and character of the property, the Utah Street neighborhood, and the Historic District.
