AARCH Annual Meeting & Award Ceremony
Sandy Hill Arts Center | Hudson Falls
Saturday, September 17 at 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM

This year, our Annual Meeting and Preservation Awards event will be held at the vibrant and recently rehabilitated Sandy Hill Arts Center in Hudson Falls.

The Sandy Hill Arts Center was originally built as a Masonic Temple and housed various functions over the years, including storefronts and offices. The iconic five-story structure has recently reemerged as a local landmark through the rehabilitation efforts of Bill Nikas and is now home to various galleries, shops, and offices, in addition to a restaurant and event spaces available for rental.

Built in 1901 as the Sandy Hill Masonic Temple, this striking Romanesque Revival-inspired brick building illustrates the prosperity that Hudson Falls (then the village of Sandy Hill) experienced as a result of the timber and papermaking boom along its powerful stretch of the Hudson River. After decades of neglect and disrepair, Bill Nikas acquired the property in 2015 and oversaw its rehabilitation. Now this striking building is a vital community hub in downtown Hudson Falls.

At 3 pm, Annual Meeting will give attendees a chance to meet and hear what we have accomplished over the past year, as well as to mingle with other AARCH members and friends.

The Annual Meeting will be followed by our 27th Annual Preservation Awards Ceremony, where we will recognize the individuals, businesses, communities, and organizations whose work exemplifies the best of historic preservation work in the Adirondack region. This event shines a special light on the passions and extraordinary work of the people who make historic preservation such an important part of the region’s vitality.

This is a great opportunity to experience a superb restoration project in this vibrant community space, to celebrate the wonderful accomplishments of our friends and neighbors, to meet AARCH board and staff, and to enjoy each other’s company. The gathering will include hors d’oeuvres and refreshments by Ginny Rae Catering.

The Annual Meeting will begin at 3 pm and will be followed by the Preservation Awards Ceremony. Our Annual Meeting is open to all members with a suggested donation of $35 for those who wish to remain for the awards program.

Registration is required and tickets are available. Kindly RSVP to AARCH.
