Preservation, and what is saved and is what is lost, is often determined by the passion and persistence of committed individuals. In Ellicott City, much is owed to Roland Bounds, a founding member of Historic Ellicott City, Inc. Read more about his legacy:
The road to recovery for Ellicott City has had many milestone moments along the way: emergency stabilization of storefronts, reopening Main Street for holiday shoppers, and progress building-by-building. Some of the smaller moments, too, like recently painted storefront murals, highlight the resilient and artistic spirit of Ellicott City.
Earlier this month, Preservation Maryland and the Patapsco Valley Heritage Greenway led a preservation-in-progress tour through Ellicott City. We will be offering similar tours and volunteer days in the future, so make sure you are subcribed to our newsletter.
