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.
Since the program’s launch in 2015, Preservation Maryland has leveraged an unparalleled $5 of support for these threatened sites for every $1 the organization has spent on the Six-to-Fix program. Your donation makes a difference and we use every penny. For Giving Tuesday, we’ve get a goal of $6000 to raise for the Six-to-Fix program.
