The city of Harriman and the Princess Theatre Partnership received the Preservation Award during the East Tennessee Historical Society’s annual Awards of Excellence presentation.
“We commend the city of Harriman for its vision and commitment to preserving the Princess Theatre,” said Society director Cherel Henderson.
“The success of the project demonstrates the importance of history and sense of place in creating character for a town.”
A vital project for the Harriman community, the rehabilitation of the 1920s-era Princess Theatre has spurred additional preservation efforts and increased business and visitor activity in downtown Harriman.
The award was presented at the organization’s annual meeting in the East Tennessee History Center, Knoxville.
