PreserveCast Ep. 14: Tolson’s Chapel and the History of Reconstruction

Tolson’s Chapel was once a school, a church, and the center of a community. Now, thanks to the work of folks like our guest Edie Wallace – with support from Preservation Maryland – it may hopefully serves as a way to glimpse into the often overlooked second act of the story of the Civil War and the emancipation of slavery.

Preservation Maryland Executive Director Nicholas Redding and host of PreserveCast sat down this week with the President of the non-profit Friends of Tolson’s Chapel, to discuss the challenges associated with preserving this unique building, and why it and similar preservation projects are a key part of the full story of the Civil War. This is PreserveCast.
