Old Town Cape Historic Landmark Preservation Group Wins State Award

Samantha Mlot, Communication & Marketing Specialist

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO- Old Town Cape, Inc. happily congratulates the Old Town Cape Historic Landmark Preservation Group on their recent honor of being awarded the Preserve Missouri Award. The 39th Annual Missouri Alliance for Preservation Statewide ceremony was held on March 22, 2018 in the Capitol Rotunda in Jefferson City. It was at that time the Old Town Cape Historic Landmark Preservation Group was honored for their work on the Marquette Tower Property. 

The Marquette Tower Property was nominated for this award by Old Town Cape, Inc. in early February 2018.  The award nomination, submitted by Special Projects Coordinator Sarah LaVenture, stated that the successful rehabilitation of the Marquette Tower has been vital to the continued livelihood of the downtown Cape Girardeau area.  The space has created jobs, supports businesses, and is a draw to the area.  The nomination was heavily based on those factors, as well as the Old Town Cape Historic Landmark Preservation Group’s efforts in revitalization and rehabilitation of the iconic structure.

The Preserve Missouri Award marks the second rehabilitation award the Old Town Cape Historic Landmark Preservation Group has received in 2018 for their efforts on the Marquette Tower project.  In February they were honored with the Old Town Cape Preservation of Heritage Award at the Old Town Cape Annual Dinner.  The Old Town Cape, Inc. Board of Directors and Staff are excited for the continued growth opportunity this project will provide the downtown area. 

 

Old Town Cape, Inc. is a community driven, not-for-profit organization that utilizes the Four-Point Main Street Approach™ to preserve, promote, revitalize, and enrich the historic, cultural, and economic landscapes of downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
