The Mid-Atlantic preservation community will convene at the Old Line State Summit on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 in Annapolis, Maryland. The one-day conference will focus on innovative and adaptable sessions, including a detailed session on the flood recovery efforts in historic Ellicott City with essential emergency preparedness tactics for every community.
The Coalition to Protect Maryland Burial Sites annual conference brought over 60 attendees to Anne Arundel County to hear about current events, like the response to the vandalized Mount Carmel in Philadelphia and the latest in conservation technologies. The sessions were recorded by Preservation Maryland and are available on YouTube.
On Saturday, May 20, the Burkittsville Preservation Association invites you to explore Burkittsville, Maryland, an historic, virtually unchanged example of an American village of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The walking tour will include 10 stops including the Civil War-era, Shafer Farm – a current Preservation Maryland Six-to-Fix project.
When you picture a historic cemetery, you probably imagine a place that’s calm and serene…when you picture cemetery preservation, the fact is that the work done by folks like our guest this week Eileen McGuckian, of the Coalition to Protect Maryland Burial Sites, requires a lively energy and lots of grassroots enthusiasm.
