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.

09/01/2016 By Preservation Maryland
Purchase your tickets to be present this October 13 at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore as Preservation Maryland announces six more important and threatened sites and learn about our successes and advances over the past year through the Six-to-Fix program. It will be an event where we can collectively show what we are for – Maryland history and heritage.
American politician and diplomat Adlai Stevenson once famously remarked,
What counts now is not just what are against, but what we are for.
Preservationists face the same paradigm. Six-to-Fix gives us all an opportunity to show what we are for as an organization.
We are for using our heritage as the bedrock of community revitalization
We are for preserving the places that mark our state unique
We are for supporting the Main Street businesses that make our state more prosperous
We are for telling diverse and important stories where they actually happened
We are for Maryland history and heritage
This is what Six-to-Fix is all about: helping people, organizations and communities come together with the necessary tools and resources to save Maryland history. Not just talk: real preservation action.
Join us this October to be part of that fix. Be there are we announce six more important and threatened sites and learn about our successes and advances over the past year through the Six-to-Fix program.
