EDEN PRAIRIE— Eden Prairie officials gifted Heritage Preservation Award to Katie Qualey during a City Council Meeting yesterday for her dedication to the city and its story.

Qualey has served as a board member and vice president of the Eden Prairie Historical Society for more than ten years, contributing to the society’s vast photo collection and preparing its newsletter, annual meeting materials and more.

As a graphic artist, Qualey has designed interpretive panels for many of the City’s historic properties including the Richard T. Anderson Conservation Area and Staring Lake Park. She has also designed visual timelines for the Cummins-Phipps-Grill Homestead and Smith-Douglas-More House. 

The city said the award was given for Qualey’s work in sharing and promoting the history of Eden Prairie, and for her contributions that “continue to influence residents and visitors for many years to come.”
