Reverend John J. Bombaro, PhD, of Grace Lutheran Church
Grace Lutheran Church takes great pride in its heritage and architecture has reached out to the preservation community, offering free meeting space to the Neighborhood Historic Preservation Coalition and the University Heights Historical Society. When it came time to restore the exterior of its 1930 church building, the pastor and congregation followed the Secretary of the Interior's standards. They are being honored for continuing this work with the restoration and renovation of the parsonage. In past years it had been converted to office and storage use. The parsonage is once again home to the pastor and his family and the pastor's study is back in its original place in the church. The historic stained-glass windows were repaired and new drought-tolerant landscaping emphasizing native plants was installed.
