Every year, Preservation Idaho hosts the Orchids & Onions Awards, a ceremony designed to celebrate places, individuals and organizations that have made a positive contribution to historic preservation in Idaho, and in turn to bring awareness to those projects that have shown insensitivity to the state’s cultural history.
Award recipients will be honored at the Main Public Library Hayes Auditorium. The ceremony is FREE to the public.
A hosted reception will follow the ceremony. Guests will have an opportunity to socialize and tour the adjacent Cabin (formerly known as the Log Cabin Literary Center), constructed in 1939 as the Idaho State Forester’s Building and listed on the National Register of Historic Place.
Inquiries may be directed to Preservation Idaho at 208 424 5111.
