The Pleasanton Heritage Association is acknowledging owners of five historic homes in town who have made restorations while carefully preserving their features of yesteryear, at a public event being held at the Museum on Main on June 9.

The annual Recognition Awards ceremony is also a chance for owners of older homes to learn about restoration from vendors, city officials and other homeowners.

Three of the homes were chosen by a vote of the association members:

* 262 W. Angela St., Joan Cordtz.

* 4636 Second St., Sandie Milne and Ray Zarodney.

* 4363 Second St., Marilyn and Tilton Gore.

Two other homes will also be recognized and receive plaques:

* 733 Division St., Linda and George Garbarino, chosen as a home of one of the association's board of directors to be honored.

* Joshua Neal Homestead, 431 Neal St., is not within the city's downtown preservation area, but the association wants to recognize it as one of the city's oldest and most historically significant homes.

The event at the Museum on Main, 603 Main St., begins outside at 11 a.m. with vendors displaying and discussing their businesses, which all support restoring, renovating and maintaining historic homes. There will also be a tag sale.

Speakers from the city will talk about historic plaques for downtown commercial buildings, the future of Century House and the Mills Act, an economic incentive program in California for the restoration and preservation of qualified historic buildings by private property owners.

The awards presentation will take place inside the museum at 1 p.m. Light refreshments by Marilyn's Morsels will be served.

Award winners receive a commemorative bronze plaque to be mounted outside their home stating the year it was built. They are also presented with a painting and a wooden miniature of their home by artist Gary Winter.

The Pleasanton Heritage Association works to preserve historic properties in the city through education and recognition.
