Mahoning Valley Historical Society announces Historic Preservation Award winners - Mahoning Matters


The Mahoning Valley Historical Society recently announced its 2021 Historic Preservation Award winners for outstanding revitalization projects and people who have made an impact on preservation in the community.

The MVHS Historic Preservation Awards are underwritten by First Place Community Fund, a component of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley. 

In the Community Revitalization Award category, "The Monastery" at 1810 Volney Road and the Mahoning County Courthouse exterior at 120 Market St. are the winning projects.  

"The Monastery," so-called because of its strong association for decades as a Carmelite monastery and worship center, led by Father Richard Madden, is owned by Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation.
