On Tuesday, December 5, 2017, Preservation Maryland hosted a live telephone town hall that reached thousands of listeners to discuss the latest threats to the federal Historic Tax Credit and how we can all be advocates for this essential program. 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.

Maryland Milestones Heritage Area to open Heritage Center in Hyattsville
Preservation Maryland supports the expansion of the Maryland Milestones Heritage Area to include portions of Bowie, Glenn Dale, and Cheverly that can then benefit from being connected to the preservation, funding, and promotional resources of the Heritage Area program.
While the presses at the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center have started rolling, Maryland Milestones Heritage Area is still fundraising to complete the build-out of the space including acquiring authentic artifacts from the region and creating interpretive panels. You can learn more on GoFundMe.
