2008 Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award Recipients

Preservation Merit Award to Rickenbacker-Woods, Inc., Columbus Neighborhood Design Assistance Center, Asebrook & Company Architects and The Durable Restoration Company for the restoration of the National Historic Landmark Captain Eddie Rickenbacker House at 1336 E. Livingston Ave. in Columbus.


“National Historic Landmark” is the highest designation given to historic places by the federal government, and this is one of three in Columbus, the others being the Statehouse and the Ohio Theatre. Unlike the other two, the childhood home of World War I hero and medal of honor recipient Eddie Rickenbacker, built by his father in 1895, had been neglected for years. Culminating years of effort by members of the community, a collaboration of Rickenbacker-Woods Technology Center, Columbus Neighborhood Design Assistance Center, Asebrook & Co. Architects, and The Durable Restoration Company has restored the modest Rickenbacker House to a state that the city will benefit from and be proud to call a part of local history. The project will become the heart of the Rickenbacker-Woods Museum, which will promote scientific innovation and technology, and will serve as an economic catalyst for the neighborhood, creating a destination for visitors and the economic benefits they bring with them.
