In July 2015, the Carver City Council voted unanimously to approve the Edith-Anne Award For Property Excellence, an award designed to recognize Carver residents that go above and beyond to maintain their property. The award honors the work of Edith Herman and Anne Neils, who were both instrumental in the creation of Carver-on-the-Minnesota's vision in the 1960s. Carver-on-the-Minnesota's mission was to
stop the wasteful deterioration of a typical 19th Century river town.
This mission was put into action through the purchase and renovation of key properties in town. Some of these buildings, like the gazebo and the "Church by the River," were eventually donated to the City. Their efforts to restore and preserve many of Carver's historic buildings helped the town recover from economic despair and would eventually lead to Carver's placement on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
