PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — Sandcastles Children’s Museum was awarded the Mason County Historical Society’s 2016 Henry and Elizabeth Haskell Historical Presevation Award during the organization’s annual meeting Thursday at the United Methodist Church of Ludington.

The award was given for the museum’s restoration of its 125 year-old building at 129 E. Ludington Ave. Accepting the award on behalf of the museum was Kristin Korendyke, executive director. Sandcastles moved into the old Elks building in 2011 and has restored each floor. Recently the building’s facade was restored. Korendyke said over 1,000 bricks were replaced.

“We are truly honored by this award,” she said.
