ACHP Announces First Winner of Preservation Month Photo Contest

Congratulations to Karen Arnett, the winner of the first week’s prize in the National Historic Preservation Week photo contest! She submitted her photo through Facebook that captured a community drum circle that is bringing life back to the Main Theater building in Mt. Healthy, Ohio, that had sat empty for a number of years. It served from 1914 to 1971 as a movie theater, and was built and operated by a single family. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places - NPS in December 2017. The mural is temporary, until the building is renovated. Keep submitting your photos and voting-the next winner will be announced Tuesday, May 15! Use the hashtag #MyHistoricPlace to post photos of you and your friends enjoying a historic place!
