JHC Recognized for Excellence in Preservation by NY State

The Jay Heritage Center (JHC) was honored with a prestigious 2022 New York State Historic Preservation Award for Excellence in Non-Profit Achievement in recognition of its rehabilitation and stewardship of the Jay Estate Gardens.

The award was one of only ten conferred this year for excellence in the preservation and revitalization of New York State’s historic and cultural resources. It was the only award made to a Westchester County non-profit organization.

New York State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid remarked, “The transformational design of the gardens not only reflects the historic context but emphasizes an intentionality to restore native species and original voices and to cultivate an appreciate and understanding of sustainable landscapes through partnerships and public outreach.”
