Ozark, AL (WTVY) Ozark's Heritage Association received a state award for their work on the preservation of the historic Holman House.

Built in 1912, the 15-thousand square foot mansion is one of Ozark's oldest structures.

Renovations began nearly three years ago by the Heritage Association.

The group has painted, installed heating and air, renovated the kitchen and more.

The Holman House was described as a "model" for restoring and maintaining a historic structure.

"We're so proud of the city of Ozark to be associated with the Ozark Heritage Association, we're proud of what they have done in our community. Preserving our history which is so very important to us," said Ozark Mayor, Billy Blackwell.

The Alabama Historic Preservation awards luncheon was held in Mobile last Friday.
