The Hopkins Historical Society has selected James and Paula Beauchene and Deb Decker as the winners of the 2012 Hopkins Area Historic Homes Award.
The society honored the Beauchenes, of 123 Eighth Ave. N., and Deb Decker, of 13 Van Buren Ave. S., for their “lovingly cared-for and beautifully restored homes,” the organization announced.
The historical society will honor the winners during a ceremony at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Hopkins Activity Center.
