This year’s Session of the Maryland General Assembly is more than a half way concluded. With less than a month remaining, Preservation Maryland and our partners have been hard at work to get several key pieces of preservation policy passed into law.
Wreaths Across America started in 1992 when a group of volunteers had a surplus of wreaths after adorning the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The movement is now supported by a national non-profit organization that helps organize wreath laying ceremonies at over 1000 cemeteries including many in Maryland.
Preservation Maryland convened dozens of volunteers at the historic Mt. Hope Baptist Church in Charles County this October for a volunteer workday addressing church history, cemetery conservation, archaeology, and historic preservation projects.
