Landmark Commission Announces Photo Contest Winners

Fifth Annual Contest Celebrates Preservation Month

Dateline: May 3, 2017 - The Shaker Heights Landmark Commission announces winners of the fifth annual Preservation Month photo contest after reviewing 75 entries from 30 photographers. Created in 2013, the contest honors National Preservation Month, which is celebrated each May by preservation organizations across the country.
