2022 Preservation Awards presented at annual SCHS dinner meeting

The John H. Adamson 2022 Excellence in Preservation Award presentations were held at the 2022 Shenandoah County Historical Society Annual Meeting and Dinner on May 17th at the historic Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2447 in Edinburg, Va.

Awards went to the Massanutten Antique Tractor and Gasoline Engine Club, Inc. for the “dedication of their members to the preservation of antique tractors, gasoline engines, farm implements and farm equipment.” The award was accepted by Steve Crites.

A second award to Todd Holtzman, which was accepted by Anita Richard and Ed Harper, was for “the restoration and re-purposing of Mount Jackson’s circa 1930s Pure Oil Service Station, now The Vase and Vine Florist and Gift Shop,” which is located in the town of Mt. Jackson, Va.

Local historian and Civil War history enthusiast Peter Dalton provided the program, Civil War Memory and the Women of the Shenandoah Valley. Mr. Dalton discussed the roles assumed by women during and after the Civil War in the Shenandoah Valley.

SCHS president Barbara Adamson conducted a business meeting that included a report on SCHS accomplishments during the past two years, as well as the election of members who will be serving on the Board of Directors for the coming year.

Earlier this year, the SCHS had changed the annual preservation award name to honor the memory of John Adamson.
