If you missed the call, you can listen and share the recording online now.
The Society for the Preservation of Old Mills (SPOOM) has identified over 500 mills throughout Maryland — only a fraction of which are still standing. This exercise illustrates the need to preserve Maryland’s industrial heritage like Preservation Maryland is helping to do along the Jones Falls in Baltimore City.
Ellicott City Flood Recovery Announced as Six-to-Fix Project
10/03/2016 By Preservation Maryland
Following the disastrous July flood, Preservation Maryland staff moved quickly to support the rebuilding effort in Ellicott City and have been on the ground since. In late July at a press conference, Preservation Maryland announced their intention to make the effort a Six-to-Fix project for 2016.
SIX-TO-FIX HELPS SAVE IMPORTANT PLACES
While the practice of announcing Six-to-Fix projects normally waits until the Six-to-Fix Reveal event, the situation in Ellicott City demanded swift action. As a result, Preservation Maryland moved with alacrity and announced the decision several months in advance. Now, when you attend the upcoming event you’ll be able to support this important work.

As a result of this declaration, the organization has been able to commit additional staff and resources to Ellicott City and open a first-of-its-kind Preservation Resource Center to assist property owners with the difficult task of rebuilding and rehabilitating their damaged historic structures.
“This is why we exist as an organization. It’s moments and projects like this which allow us to show our supporters and friends what we stand for. Fortunately, our Six-to-Fix program was designed for situations exactly like this,” explained Nicholas Redding, Executive Director of Preservation Maryland.
