In May Bea Swartfigure Sweeney was honored with a Spirit of Preservation award presented by the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation. In 1967 Bea used the newly enacted National Preservation Act to protect the city’s Franklin Square area from state- and federally funded projects. She is also known for her work developing the National Register district for Broadway in Saratoga Springs, paving the way for the community’s Great American Main Street recognition. And when a hotel was proposed in Congress Park, site of the historic Canfield Casino, Bea blocked its development. She was also active in organizing the city archives and history museum.
