When you spend money along Maryland’s Main Streets, you’re supporting local businesses and the historic properties that they steward. If you like window shopping by foot, trying new local restaurants, collecting art and antiques – and need to do some holiday shopping – then Small Business Saturday is for you!

Preservation Maryland to Lead Panel Discussion in Historic Brunswick
11/13/2017 By Preservation Maryland
On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, local citizens and Preservation Maryland will host a panel discussion at Smoketown Brewing Station entitled, “Revitalizing Brunswick: Using our Heritage to Create a More Prosperous Future.”
Organizations which specialize in economic redevelopment in historic communities, including Preservation Maryland and 1000 Friends of Maryland, will lead the conversation with a focus on strategies that have worked around the state and nation.
As a part of its rural community outreach efforts, Preservation Maryland is assisting local citizens who are interested in beginning a broader dialogue about the future of the City of Brunswick. Specifically, these citizens have an interest in determining a way to balance preservation with growth and to encourage the revitalization of the downtown utilizing a pro-preservation framework. The goal of the forum is to begin a thoughtful dialogue on the City of Brunswick’s future and to encourage the retention and preservation of more historic buildings.
