Earl Borden Award Ceremony

Each year, the City of Rochester Hills Historic District Commission acknowledges historic preservation efforts within the community through the Earl Borden Awards for Historic Preservation. The award is named in honor of the memory of Earl Borden, the first mayor of Rochester Hills. Borden was a long time public servant and was Supervisor of Avon Township during the transition period when the township became the City of Rochester Hills.

This year, the Earl Borden Award for Historic Preservation will be presented to Mark and Micki Kowal for the restoration of their home in the Stoney Creek Historic District. The Earl Borden Award for Historic Preservation Leadership will be presented to Deborah Larsen for her book, Home Town Rochester: A History of Rochester, Avon Township and Rochester Hills, Michigan, recently published by the Rochester Avon Historical Society.

The Earl Borden Award ceremony will be held at the Rochester Hills Municipal Offices at 1000 Rochester Hills Drive on Monday, May 18, 2009, at 7:00 p.m. Anyone interested in historic preservation is invited to attend.
