As part of a year-long initiative to support the historic resources within Maryland State Parks, Preservation Maryland has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to document some of those most historic and unique properties in the State Parks. Recently, a team went to the Hornbaker House at Fort Frederick State Park.
Preservation Maryland has been working closely with the Friends of Newtowne Manor House in Southern Maryland to repair and reuse their historic Manor House. Many repairs have been made by their volunteer corps, and the group is inviting all to participate in a fun 5K walk around the historic complex and surrounding State Park in support of their work.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is conducting a statewide public survey to help set their priorities in land acquisition, conservation, and recreation — there are several questions related to the maintenance and interpretation of historic sites so it’s a great opportunity to show how important Maryland history is to you.
