The 2007 Governor ’s Heritage Preservation Honor Award to the L. Ron Hubbard House at Camelback

The President of the Arizona Preservation Foundation, Vince Murray, presented a Governor’s Heritage Preservation Award to The Friends of L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology International to recognize the contribution their restoration project has made to the preservation of Arizona’s unique heritage. The award was presented on June 14, at the 2007 Arizona State Wide Historic Preservation Partnership Conference at the Elk’s Theater in Prescott, Arizona. Mrs. Marlyse Brock, Property Manager of the L. Ron Hubbard House, Mrs Monica Sanz Polo, President of the Friends of L. Ron Hubbard Foundation and Mr. Luc Dubois, representative of the Church of Scientology International accepted the award at the Elk’s Theater.

The award-winning project was an historic restoration of the late 1940s single-family dwelling constructed at 5501 Tatum Boulevard (now the northern end of 44th Street), which was at that time the outskirts of Phoenix. The historic House was the home of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology founder, from 1952-1955, during the time when he made important advances in his work.The L. Ron Hubbard house provides a historically accurate record of the way it looked in 1952 and stands at the dawn of the religion’s birth, as Mr. Hubbard established the first Scientology organizations, codified basic principles of Scientology, authored half a dozen Scientology texts and delivered more than 600 instructional lectures to local residents and thousands of people who traveled to Phoenix from around the world to hear him

I haven't been there yet but a friend of mine who visited it was blown away by the work that was done and the accuracy of the renovations.
