Dan Elswick, the historical architecture consultant with the State Historic Preservation Office at the S.C. Department of Archives and History since 1986, received the Lifetime Achievement award in Historic Columbia’s 2020 Preservation Awards.
A news release from Historic Columbia noted Elswick’s dedication to helping owners of area historic properties receive tax credits and grants for preservation projects.
