The Preservation Virginia Award

Grant Recipient 2019

In 2020, Sharon and Scott received the Gabriella Page Award for Outstanding Preservation Project, named for Preservation Virginia’s longtime past president, which recognizes a property owner, architect, design firm, contractor or developer for a residential, commercial or public-sector project that best exemplifies the use of preservation standards and brings an outstanding building into appropriate and relevant contemporary use.

 “Selma Mansion, a Colonial Revival mansion important to Loudoun County’s history, located in the Catoctin Rural Historic District was added to Preservation Virginia’s Most Endangered Places List in 2009 due to years of neglect and vandalism. Sharon D Virts and Scott F Miller acquired and completed a major renovation project which saved the mansion from demolition. Virginia Living wrote about the restoration in 2019.” – Virginia Living
