Heritage Homes of Petaluma
2007 Preservation Awards
I am very pleased and honored to be awarded the 2007 "Recognition of Achievement" award by Heritage Homes of Petaluma for "outstanding individual leadership in Petaluma preservation."
An article by Diana Painter and Kevin Brownlee on Spokane’s Nettleton’s Addition National Register District was recently published in the National Park Service’s CRM Journal. See a pdf of more information on this early 20th century streetcar suburb. It is now the largest National Register District in Washington State, and has received much positive publicity as a result, assisting in the revitalization of this neighborhood.

2005 Peterson Prize for Historic Research
I am pleased to announce that Painter Preservation & Planning was the recipient of the 2005 Peterson Prize for historic research. The prize is awarded annually by the Sonoma County Records Commission
for research utilizing the Sonoma County Recorder's Office records.
It was awarded for the Historic Context Report, "M. Vonsen
and the First Street Warehouses." This report documented the
life of Magnus Vonsen, important in Petaluma's heyday as the "Chicken
Capital of the United States" and a nationally-recognized mineralogist.
It also provided HABS-like documentation as mitigation for the demolition
the waterfront warehouses and feedmill associated with his feed
