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: Mid-Century Modern Maryland Bus Tour
09/26/2015 By Elly Colmers Cowan
In the 1960s Prince George’s was the fasted growing in the country – that’s one of the reasons why there’s a great collection of modern buildings!
Preservation Maryland hosted a bus tour on September 26 through Prince George’s and Montgomery County to wonderful, but often threatened, mid-century modern buildings and communities, including the Greenbelt Museum, M-NCPPC Headquarters, Washington Suburban Sanitation Commission, the Hyattsville Library, the National Library of Medication, and Carderock Springs residential community, near Bethesda. The tour was developed and led by Melanie Lytle, Executive Director of the Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions, and annually offers a course on “Modernism for Maryland’s Historic Preservation Commissions.”
