Indiana Landmarks Honors Rowland
Indiana Landmarks is celebrating the accomplishments of those who have made an impact in historic preservation throughout the state. The organization has presented its Williamson Prize for "outstanding individual leadership."
The Williamson Prize, named for former longtime Indiana Landmarks President Reid Williamson, was awarded to Sallie Rowland, who led the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission, beginning in the late 1970s. Marsh Davis, current president of Indiana Landmarks, says Rowland's preservation and community revitalization efforts have driven her for more than 40 years, especially at a time when historic preservation was not a popular idea. Rowland is the former CEO of Rowland Design.
As part of the Williamson Prize, Rowland receives a $1,000 cash award and the Williamson Prize sculpture.
