2016 Founders Award Dinner


Revolution Starts at Home

The Board of Directors of the Historic House Trust along with Cynthia Wainwright and Stephen Berger hosted the annual 2016 Founders Award Dinner on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at The Metropolitan Club in Manhattan.

The evening’s theme, Revolution! Starts at Home, marks the 240th anniversary of our country’s 1776 fight for independence and permits us to reflect on the many historical, cultural, and social upheavals that HHT’s homes have witnessed – and withstood – throughout centuries of change in New York City. The event will support all 23 houses and feature those in the Borough of Manhattan.

This year we proudly announced Margize Howell as the recipient of the Founders Award in recognition of her distinguished career in historic preservation. Margize is a member of the HHT Directors’ Council and has been an ardent supporter since 1994.  Her interest in the preservation of historic homes began at a young age and grew into an extensive career that embodies a committed dedication to preserving our American heritage. Margize is currently the Co-President of Classical American Homes Preservation Trust.
