Peerless Rockville will celebrate the hard work of homeowners, businesses, and organizations, and recognize outstanding achievement in the design, maintenance and preservation of our community, at the 40th annual Peerless Awards.

The awards, featuring dinner and entertainment, will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15 at Lakewood Country Club, 13901 Glen Mill Road.

Projects are honored in a variety of categories, including stewardship of historic properties; preservation, restoration, rehabilitation or renovation; adaptive use; compatible infill; new construction; sustainable design; landscape design; craftsmanship; public art; and educational outreach. The Wagman Award for Historic Preservation Communication will honor a writer; educator; historian; visual and performing artist; or media member whose work has heightened public awareness of Rockville’s architectural and cultural heritage, growth, and development.

The evening will also look back at 40 years of impressive projects that preserved Rockville’s heritage, improved its present, and contributed to Rockville’s proud modern identity and unique built environment.
