Today is International Women’s Day, and we know that women have played an essential role in the history of preservation from the Ladies’ Association of Mount Vernon to our own Michelle Eshelman, a recent architecture school graduate that jumped right into the Ellicott City recovery efforts. Here are some great interviews with Maryland women of preservation on our podcast, PreserveCast:

PreserveCast receives Statewide Award for Excellence in Media
02/01/2018 By Preservation Maryland
PreserveCast, a podcast powered by Preservation Maryland, was recently honored with a statewide award for excellence by the Maryland state agency for historic preservation, the Maryland Historical Trust.
Preservation Maryland Executive Director —and PreserveCast host— Nicholas Redding and Stephen Israel, the podcast’s producer, accepted the award for Excellence in Media & Publications from Elizabeth Hughes, Maryland State Historic Preservation Officer. The annual Maryland Historical Trust awards were announced at a ceremony that took place in the State Senate Office in Annapolis immediately following Maryland History Advocacy Day.
Launched late in 2016, PreserveCast, has become America’s most listened to historic preservation podcast with steadily increasing listenership. Each episode features an in-depth and exciting conversation with a leader in historic preservation about the role of new and old technologies in their work offering a range of perspectives from across the country. In fact, listenership has a reach far greater than Maryland.
“We’re thrilled to be honored and appreciate the vote of confidence from our friends at the Maryland Historical Trust. Now the work on Season Two begins in earnest, but fortunately for us, there are so many more stories to be told and individuals to interview,” explained Nicholas Redding upon receiving the award.
