WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Historic Wilmington Foundation held its preservation awards ceremony Thursday night. Executive Director George Edwards says the organization helps people through the task of saving and rebuilding historic properties here in our city.

"We have technical services, we get people together with the right kinds of contractors and specialists and we advise people how to use the state and federal tax credits," Edwards said.

It was a full house for the awards presentation. Old homes are a passion in Wilmington, and they have a lot of help.

Suzanne Stanley received an award for bringing her home back from the brink. She bought the Burns-Huggins House some time ago.

"In 1988, and I had it restored, because it had been condemned by the city many years before," she said. "Then I just lived in it and went to business and came home and loved my house every minute."

Stanley rehabbed her home only to have it almost lost to a fire. She made it through that and continues to support her home other people restoring historic property in Wilmington.
