On the one year anniversary of the Ellicott City, Marylandflood, Preservation Maryland remembers the lives that were lost and recognizes the strong Maryland community that came together to help this special place recover and rebuild with its history in mind.
On the anniversary of the devastating flood in historic Ellicott City, our Executive Director, Nicholas Redding reflects on Preservation Maryland’s year-long response and commitment to help the people of Ellicott City rebuild their historic community:
The response by Preservation Maryland to the Ellicott City flood of 2016 was an opportunity to utilize our strengths – our understanding of historic buildings – to help those impacted. It has also been one of the greatest challenges. In our “After Action Report,” we summarized our actions to provide the opportunity to learn from our experiences.
