On Friday, June 5, 2009, Montgomery Preservation Inc, recognized a group of distinguished homeowners, architects, designers and citizen groups for their historic preservation projects in Montgomery County. The ceremony was held at the old B&O Train Station on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring--a major project of Montgomery Preservation Inc.
During the program, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett presented a special award to the mother of the late Wayne Goldstein, who, until his death in April, was the President of Montgomery Preservation Inc.
Among the many awardees were residents of the Lyttonville community of Silver Spring who won an award for their Black History Month exhibit which illuminated the life and times of Sammuel Lytton, a freed slave. The exhibit included a copy of the original deed conveying property in 1853 to Samuel Lytton, as well as interesting maps, photographs, and numerous other documents and artifacts.
