Mary Barrett Historical Home Award

The Plymouth Borough Planning Agency is proud to introduce the Mary Barrett Historical Home Award!

This Award was created to celebrate the beautiful historic houses of Plymouth and to honor the late Mary Barrett, a dedicated member of the Planning Agency who loved the historical buildings of Plymouth and invested time and energy to the restoration of her own historical home.

To nominate a home, please complete the attached form. The Planning Agency will award one home per quarter. You can nominate your own home or that of a friend or neighbor, as long as the home is located within the boundaries of Plymouth Borough.

The first award will be decided by the Planning Agency in December and announced at the January council meeting. Nominations will roll over quarter-to-quarter so no need to re-nominate each quarter.
