Huntington, W.Va. (AP) -- The Preservation Alliance of West Virginia plans to honor a Huntington family and an official with the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Hyman family and Greg Coble will be recognized Wednesday for their work in historic preservation and heritage development during the alliance's awards banquet at the Keith-Albee Theater in Huntington.

Coble is chief financial officer for the national trust.

The Charleston native helped to list the Blair Mountain Battlefield on the trust's list of the nation's most endangered historic places in 2006.

Three generations of the Hyman family owned the Keith-Albee, which opened in 1928 as a vaudeville theater and later operated as a movie theater.

The theater closed in 2006 and is being restored as a performing arts center.
