The Montanez Adobe may have been around since 1794, but it’s finally getting its props.
The awards will be received in a ceremony scheduled for Saturday in Los Angeles.
The Montanez project, which included a seismic retrofitting, a new roof, porch posts and earth floors, was one of 17 winners selected from 75 entries, according to the Preservation Foundation website.
“Historic preservation is an on-going process and this award proves that hard work and determination are recognized and appreciated,” Jerry Nieblas, president of the Capistrano Historical Alliance Committee Board of Directors said through a statement.
The project started when Teri Delcamp was still on staff as the city’s historic preservation manager. She left the city to take a similar position in Riverside about a year ago.
