Heritage Preservation Award

640020Winter
The Edina Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) sponsors an annual Edina Heritage Award to showcase local historic preservation activity. The Edina Heritage Award is given to an individual, family, company or organization that has contributed to the historic fabric of the community and made an outstanding contribution to the preservation, rehabilitation, restoration and use of Edina’s heritage resource. The heritage resource must be located in the City of Edina.


The City of Edina’s Heritage Preservation Commission awarded Nate and Tiffany Mueller the 2018 Heritage Award for commitment to preserving the historic character of their home, located at 6400 Parnell Ave. S. 

The Edina Heritage Award is given to individuals, families, companies or organizations that have made an outstanding contribution to the preservation, rehabilitation, restoration and use of Edina’s heritage resources. The Mueller residence is a mid-century home built in 1964. This walkout rambler in the Lake Cornelia area features large A-frame windows that immediately captured the Mueller’s interest when they were looking for a home in 2016. As they’ve made improvements, they strived to maintain period-appropriate design, while adding contemporary and personal touches. So far, they have addressed drainage issues, replaced and repainted the siding, updated both upstairs bathrooms and are currently renovating the kitchen. 

Previous winners include the Johnson/Anton House, Vayda House, Savory’s Gardens, Arthur Erickson House, Southdale Center, the Convention Grill, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, a colonial revival home in the Edina Country Club District, the Coddington House on Blake Road, Edina Morningside Community Church, the historic Sly Farmhouse on Brookview Avenue, the Morningside Neighborhood, Edina Cinema for their iconic sign and the Baird House.
