Barbara Morgan received the Preservation Volunteer Award from the Anne Arundel County Trust for Preservation, Inc. on October 10, 2012. The award was in recognition of her work, her leadership, and her perseverance in restoring Goshen Farm, the “old Radoff house” as she knew it growing up. The ceremony was held at Indian Range, the home of Dr. James and Bridget Blake. The home was built c.1852 and has been beautifully restored, or as the Blakes say, “It is a work in progress.” The house is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Board members Stuart and Karen Bailey and Sharon Biondi attended, as well as Barbara’s husband, Jay, and her mother.

Another local family was represented as Orlando Ridout V received the 32nd Marjorie Murray Bridgmman Award for his work as an architectural historian, his writings, teaching, and research on vernacular architecture, and his many volunteer hours of service in the cause of preserving both Anne Arundel County and Maryland history. His father, Orlando Ridout IV, a long-time friend and support of Goshen Farm also attended the award ceremony.

Senator John Astle, Councilman Dick Ladd, and Janice Hayes-Williams, Legislative aid to Councilman Chris Trumbauer also attended the ceremony.
