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.
Tour Recap: In the Footsteps of John Brown’s Raid
10/17/2015 By Elly Colmers Cowan
On the anniversary of the event, Preservation Maryland organized a car caravan and walking tour along the route of John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry, WV.
Thanks to Dennis Frye, Chief Historian of the National Historical Park, attendees received an in-depth and rare interior tour of the Kennedy Farm House, historically rented by Brown as a headquarters of sorts, and continued on to a walking tour through historical landscapes to the site of the filed raid on the Armory – all on a beautiful fall day.
