CHICAGO (AP) - Nine historic preservation projects in Illinois will be honored next month at an awards celebration in Chicago.

The projects are being honored by Landmarks Illinois, which is a nonprofit group. The award celebration is Oct. 22.

Among the projects being recognized by the preservation group are the Strand Apartments in Chicago, the Stone Avenue Train Station in LaGrange, the Jail Hill Inn in Galena and an American history project at Gibault High School in the southwest Illinois community of Waterloo.

Landmarks Illinois President and CEO Bonnie McDonald says the award winners have transformed once vacant and forgotten buildings into vibrant community spaces.
