Going the Extra Mile (GEM)
The Coronado Historical Association is dedicated to preserving our community’s special heritage and celebrating our past, present, and future.
In that spirit, every year since 2013 the Coronado Historical Association bestows a GEM award to the owner of a local home or business who by Going the Extra Mile accomplished exceptional results in preserving a Coronado cultural resource. These dedicated community members choose to restore rather than replace these structures, ensuring that Coronado’s architectural GEMs remain in place for generations to come.
