Crestwood volunteer wins a national award

Enid Barnes, president of the Sappington House Foundation, has been awarded first place in the 2005 National Society Daughters of the American Revolution Historic Preservation Award Contest.

Barnes was selected for her longstanding volunteer service to the community through leadership and support of the Sappington House Museum.

The award says her work is most impressive and that “it is obvious that her accomplishments have preserved and enriched the heritage of her community.”

Barnes, who has been a volunteer for more than 25 years, said, “I still cannot believe that this ‘Jewel in the City of Crestwood’ could win a national award and I think and know it is such a special house and I have loved every minute of my volunteer hours there.”
