Tim Shelly was honored at Indiana Landmarks 62nd Annual Meeting Saturday, September 10. The meeting was held at Indiana Landmarks Center Campus, located in the Old Northside neighborhood of Indianapolis.
Tim received the 2022 Williamson Prize for Outstanding Preservation Leadership.
The award named for J. Reid Williamson, Jr, president of Indiana Landmarks from 1973 to 2005 honors outstanding leadership and achievement in preservation.
“Tim makes a real effort to connect personally with the people who are part of individual preservation projects,” says former Chief Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court, the Honorable Randy Shepherd, a member of the Williamson Prize selection committee.1
“Tim leads by example, championing not only preservation and philanthropy in his own community but at the state and national level, as well,” says Marsh Davis, president of Indiana Landmarks. “He truly embodies the tenets of the Williamson Prize, and we look forward to presenting the award to him at Indiana Landmarks’ annual meeting in September.”1
Many readers and members know Tim and his wife, Meg, from interactions or events at the T.C. Boyhood Home in Waveland, Indiana. Tim and Meg purchased this home in 2013. The house, a Greek Revival (circa 1853), is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Shellys have been generous in the use of this historic home and are fully engaged and committed to the Waveland community.
We enjoyed a lovely weekend at T.C. Steele’s boyhood home in Waveland through the generosity of Tim and Meg Shelly. Beautiful restoration of an endangered historical site, and wonderful tribute to T.C. Steele’s legacy.Heather and Brian Reichenbach, Warsaw, Indiana – September 2022
We congratulate Tim on this noteworthy recognition and thank both Tim and Meg for their ongoing support of our work.
