Pennsylvania's Historic Preservation Awards continue a tradition held since 1979 whereby excellence in preservation is recognized and honored.

Presented each September by Preservation Pennsylvania, the annual awards recognize significant contributions in the field of historic preservation made by both individuals and organizations. Recognition encompasses the categories of preservation initiatives, construction and archaeology projects.

In September 27, 2013, Totts Gap Arts Institute was awarded THE PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC PRESERVATION AWARD for special initiatives, services or commitment to preservation values under the heading of Community Involvement.
