Since its founding in 1977, Hayden Homes received numerous awards as well as national recognition from leading industry publications. These include the following:

Chesterfield Ancient History - Leonard Blake Award
In August 2008, The Chesterfield City Council and the Chesterfield Landmarks Preservation Commission awarded Dennis Hayden the Chesterfield Ancient History Award for his role in preserving a prehistoric Native American site discovered at the Countryside at Chesterfield subdivision in 1993. The award is given annually to an individual who has made a significant contribution to recognize and preserve prehistory in the community. After discovering interesting rock flakes and the presence of looters during the beginning of site work at Countryside in 1993, Dennis Hayden contacted the police, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and archaeologists at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He then protected the site and funded its archaeological excavation, which revealed a large Native American Village dating between 2300 and 1900 B.C.

    The Home Builders Association of Greater St. Louis developed the BRAVO Awards in 1995/96 to honor HBA builders that have created beautiful neighborhoods and to show what happens when these communities "grow up." Eligible communities have been complete for 6-10 years and are judged based on the style and condition of the community, the streetscape, the desirability of the community as a place to live, the resale value of homes in the community and the condition and upkeep of neighborhood facilities, if any. In the first nine years this award program was in existence and while Hayden Homes was amember of the HBA, Hayden Homes garnered eight of these highly coveted awards, proof that our communities and homes retain their beauty and value many years after they are sold and built.
