Amanda Fenstermaker, Preservation Maryland Board member and Director of Dorchester County Tourism, was recently honored at an event in Cambridge, Maryland with a citation from Governor Larry Hogan for her community service and heritage preservation efforts.
North Brentwood was the first African American town to become part of Prince George’s County when it was incorporated in 1924. Over time and out of necessity, this historic enclave has been home and host to famous citizens, athletes, and musicians — like Sis’s Tavern that hosted Duke Ellington.

We are asking folks affiliated with preservation across Maryland, to please respond to this quick 8-question survey. Respondents should answer each question to the best of your knowledge, and you may leave a question blank if you are uncertain of the answer. Thank you for your time!

“A historic properties redevelopment program, or revolving fund, is an active real estate-based program for protecting endangered properties using techniques such as: options, purchase/resale, easements and tax credits. These historic structures ultimately are returned to the private sector with deed restrictions in place. Any proceeds realized from transactions are “recycled” to sustain the proactive preservation efforts of the program. The goal of these programs is community redevelopment using historic preservation as a tool.” – 1772 Foundation
Preservation Maryland is Maryland’s first and largest organization dedicated to preserving the state’s historic buildings, neighborhoods, landscapes, and archaeological sites.
