The Gwinnett Historical Society (GHS) presented The Fort Daniel Foundation its annual Preservation Award for its efforts in studying, saving, and preserving the Fort Daniel site. Another preservation award was given to the Gwinnett County Division of Community Services for its purchase of the site to ensure that it can be preserved and developed as a historic site and passive archaeological park. Pictured (right) is Fort Daniel Foundation President and Site Archaeologist, Jim D’Angelo, who received the award plaque on behalf of the Foundation from GHS President, Vicki Watkins.
