The Society of American Registered Architects (SARA) awarded David Scott Parker Architects with a SARA Award Design of Merit for professional design excellence for the Greenwich Historical Society’s reimagined campus. Now in its 24th year, the prestigious awards program celebrates the work of architects selected from a pool of hundreds of new projects throughout the region by an esteemed jury. The awards were presented at a reception this month at Battery Park in New York. Earlier this year, the Greenwich Historical Society was recognized with an award for Preservation Excellence from the CT Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Greenwich Historical Society’s newly restored campus was opened in October, 2018 and features new exhibition galleries, a visitor center, café, museum store, substantially larger library and archives and gardens inspired by renowned members of the American Impressionist Art Colony who lived studied and worked at the site of the campus.
