(WBI) to a historic property owner who has made a significant effort to restore and maintain the property while preserving its architectural heritage. This award will be given to one property each year to honor the memory and legacy of Florence Carrington, the owner of the first individually listed property on the National Register of Historic Places in Warrensburgh, the former Merrill Magee House, in 1985. The owners of the Cornerstone Victorian Bed & Breakfast, Doug and Louise Goettsche, have been chosen to receive this award for efforts over the past two decades to not only preserve and maintain an architectural gem, but to also operate a successful business that has received many regional and national awards.
