Boise Department of Arts & History Wins Merit Awards for Trolley Station Plaza, Leadership


Someone in Nashville thinks highly of how Boise is preserving its historical landmarks.

At its 2014 annual meeting, the American Association for State and Local History will confer awards of merit to Boise City Department of Arts and History Director Terri Schorzman and the department as a whole for their dedication to preserving Boise's history and the Historic South Boise Trolley Station Plaza, respectively. 

The plaza, which is located in Ivywild Park, celebrates Boise's former historic trolley station, and was dedicated in August 2013 during Boise's sesquicentennial celebration.

The ASSLH annual meeting will take place Friday, Sept. 19, in St. Paul, Minn., and will confer 77 national awards this year to honor people, projects, books, exhibits and organizations that represent and preserve state and local history. The group is headquartered in Nashville.
