History can’t preserve itself. Most cars, on the other hand, may soon be driving themselves. This week on PreserveCast, we talk to Atul Sharma, an urban planning expert in Maryland who’s been working all over the country and now focusing on Montgomery County right here in Maryland. Atul’s work has recently included preparing for self-driving cars and how such a massive technological shift will impact everyday communities as well as our state’s historic areas.
Today, May 18, 2017, marks the 40th anniversary of International Museum Day. Museums are imperative to preserving and interpreting cultural heritage and history, and this celebration of museums hopes to encourage education and understanding about what museums mean to our societies. In honor of this annual event, we’ve put together a diverse list of museums in Maryland.
In 2016, thanks to the support of our loyal donors, Preservation Maryland dramatically expanded the operations and impact of the organization. We rose to meet a series of new and dynamic challenges and held true to our commitment to defend and preserve Maryland’s irreplaceable history and heritage.
