Preservation Woodstock member Steve Campbell nominated Nix in recognition of his role in restoring a historic building in downtown Woodstock
With so many old buildings and structures being demolished for new development, it is important that we recognize those who save old structures and renovate them for further use, said Campbell. Spencer Nix is being recognized as our Citizen of the Year for his efforts for saving the old Priest Home Furnishings warehouse to be utilized as a facility and meeting place for Reformation Brewery.
Nix believes that preserving Woodstocks history is important.History is our story; an epic, a tragedy, a comedy, a quest, and a continual rebirth. Preserving our history gives our community its unique character and links us to the roots of the community and its people, adding to the quality of life.
