Park City officials recently honored the preservation efforts at 562 Main St., the building that houses Fletcher's restaurant.

The historic building underwent an ambitious renovation that was completed in late 2015. City Hall says an addition on the back that was not historic was removed and historic materials were preserved throughout the project. The building was panelized, meaning that walls were temporarily removed, a new structural skeleton was made and the walls reattached afterward.

The municipal government, meanwhile, negotiated an easement that ensures the outside of the building will reflect the historic character.

The Historic Preservation Board chose the project for an annual award. Park City officials presented a painting of the building at a recent City Council meeting. The painting, by artist Cara Jean Means, will hang on the third floor of the Marsac Building.
