TACOMA — Kevin Palo, a resident of Ilwaco and faculty member at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking, has been awarded the David Douglas Award from the Washington State Historical Society Board of Trustees for the Fort Worden Windows Restoration Project in 2010. 

This innovative project combined historic preservation instruction and practice with energy conservation and weatherization, not only preserving some of the state’s most historic structures but also helping to train a group of craftspeople who are skilled in historic preservation techniques.

The David Douglas Award recognizes the significant contribution of an individual or an organization through projects, exhibits, educational products or any other vehicle that informs or expands appreciation of any field of Washington state history during the previous year.

The award will be presented at the annual meeting of the Historical Society on June 18 at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma at the noon luncheon.
