Preservation Summer School

Preservation Summer School MailerThis year's Preservation Summer School - "Uncovering the Untold Stories" on Wednesday, July 23, at McDaniel College in Westminster was a great success!  As the demographics in Maryland continue to shift, preservationists and historians must be sure they are telling the stories that people are interested in hearing.  At Preservation Summer School, over 70 people came together to discover and learn how to communicate effectively the stories of underrepresented groups in their community.

In the morning, scholars and practitioners presented some "untold stories" which got the audience thinking about which stories might resonate in their community.  Throughout the afternoon, participants learned how to use partnerships to get these stories out to a broader audience and how social media can serve as an effective tool for conducting campaigns and sharing stories.
