2010 Heritage Awards Luncheon

The purpose of the Heritage Awards is to recognize those projects, organizations, agencies, and individuals that exemplify the highest standards within the preservation movement. Utah Heritage Foundation distributes and accepts nominations from December through January for projects completed in the previous year (2010 awards honor projects completed in 2009).   The Heritage Awards ceremony will took place April 30 at the Salt Lake Masonic Temple.

Heritage Awards recipients will be notified of their award in early March. All recipients were honored at UHF's Heritage Awards Luncheon on Friday, April 30, 2010 at the Salt Lake Masonic Temple as part of the Utah Preservation Conference in Salt Lake City.    The Masonic Temple is located at 650 East South Temple in Salt Lake City.  Owners of Heritage Award-winning projects and individuals received two complimentary tickets to the Luncheon.  One ticket is included with the All-in-One registration for the Utah Preservation Conference; all others purchased tickets for $35 per person.  After April 20, including the day of the event, ticket prices increased to $40 per person.

There are no physical tickets for the event, and we only required guests' names to check in for the event.


Heritage Awards attendees could park behind the Masonic Temple for free. There are two entrances to the parking lot south of the building:

  • From eastbound South Temple, turn in the driveway along the west side of the Temple.
  • From southbound 700 East, turn into the parking lot south of the Anniversary Inn.


We also encouraged attendees to use any one of the public transit options available for reaching the Masonic Temple. Particularly, UTA bus route 209 makes regular stops close to the Temple. Visit the UTA website for specific route information.
