Woodside to give historic preservation award

Woodside's past, and a recognition of those who have made notable efforts to preserve it, will be celebrated between 4 and 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, at the Woodside Community Museum at Town Center.

At this event, the History Committee will announce the recipient of the town's first Historic Preservation Award. Appetizers. The award "celebrates property owners who have preserved and maintained historic structures and/or have demonstrated a commitment to preservation," according to the History Committee.

To be eligible, a structure must be at least 50 years old. The award is meant to inspire others to preserve elements of the town's past that "embody (its) unique character and provide a tangible link to its rich heritage."

The Community Museum is open on the first and third Saturdays of the month between 1 and 4 p.m., or by appointment. Among the rotating exhibits are artifacts salvaged from the Jackling House, an estate built for copper baron Daniel Jackling in the 1920s and demolished in February 2011 by former Apple Computer CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs after he won a decade-long battle to replace the house with something more modern.

To RSVP or for further information about the history of Woodside, your property, donations to the museum, or to arrange a private visit, call 851-1294 or send an email to woodsidehistory@woodsidetown.org.
