Restoration of College Inn is recognized

Dr. Mildred Caudle and the city of Athens received Friday from the Alabama Historical Commission the Distinguished Service Award for the restoration of the old College Inn buildings at the Alabama Preservation Conference in Point Clear.

Earl Glaze, city sanitation department manager, and Larry Underwood, who carried out and supervised the restoration, joined Caudle in accepting the award.

The designation follows close on the heels of the Alabama Historic Commission’s August awarding of Best Historic Restoration Project in the State in 2008 to the recently completed College Inn buildings.

The two buildings are now city owned and sit side-by-side across from Big Spring Park, a few blocks from their original site. One building is being outfitted for a children’s hands-on museum and the other houses Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful.
