Cathedral wins mayoral award

Last evening the Springfield Historic Sites Commission presented the 2011 Mayor's Historic Preservation Awards at the Edwards Place.

It was a very nice evening and a fitting celebration of the good work done by so many lovers of local history and architecture.

The Diocese of Springfield in Illinois was presented an award for "Preservation Efforts by a Not-For-Profit Organization or Agency" for the recent restoration of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

Mayor Mike Houston presents the award to Bishop Paprocki and Father Harman
