Preservation Maryland the second oldest statewide historic preservation organization in the country. Founded in 1931, its goals and objectives reflected the period’s strong interest in colonial and revolutionary history. Over the years Preservation Maryland has expanded its mission.
Preservation Maryland's headquarters is in the 1791 Old St. Paul's Rectory, located in Baltimore's Mt. Vernon Cultural District and near the Inner Harbor. St. Paul's Rectory was built in 1791 on land conveyed to the Vestry of St. Paul's by John Eager Howard in 1786. It is a Baltimore City Landmark, and a contributing structure of the Cathedral Hill Historic District. Preservation Maryland occasionally makes the Rectory available for meetings and social events.
