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.
Marylanders responded immediately and generously to help historic Ellicott City recover from a devastating flood down Main Street. With the funds raised Preservation Maryland put boots-on-the-ground in the form of a Preservation Resource Center to provide direct, one-on-one technical assistance to the community’s property and business owners.
In the weeks since Preservation Maryland opened our Preservation Resource Center in Ellicott City, we have been actively involved in providing on-the-ground direct technical assistance to dozens of property owners.
Preservation Maryland’s Executive Director Nicholas Redding spoke with Sheila Kast from WYPR 88.1fm on October 7, 2016 about the preservation-sensitive recovery and rebuilding efforts happening in historic Ellicott City since the July 2016 flood.
