Old Town garage honored with preservation award

by Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

Park City officials last week honored the preservation efforts that resulted in the renovation of a historic garage in Old Town.

The work at 101 Prospect Ave. received the Historic Preservation Award in 2014. City Hall’s Old Town panel, the Historic Preservation Board, gives out the award.

The garage dates to approximately 1925 and was restored in 2012, Park City’s historic preservation planner said in a report provided to Mayor Jack Thomas and the Park City Council.

Anya Grahn, the historic preservation planner at City Hall, says the garage was upgraded structurally. The report indicates a concrete foundation was put at the site to replace beams for support and pylons.

Bill Kranstover, a Park City artist, created a painting of the garage to commemorate the award. The painting will hang on the third floor of the Marsac Building.

It is the fifth project to receive the award.
