Today is International Women’s Day, and we know that women have played an essential role in the history of preservation from the Ladies’ Association of Mount Vernon to our own Michelle Eshelman, a recent architecture school graduate that jumped right into the Ellicott City recovery efforts. Here are some great interviews with Maryland women of preservation on our podcast, PreserveCast:

Nothing can replace the feel or the authenticity of a historic place or a community. History endows society with a sense of purpose and gives communities solid bedrock upon which to build a more just, sustainable future.
Neighborhoods and communities with rehabbed historic buildings are more walkable and are great places for small, local businesses to grow. Our historic communities can also help address the overwhelming need for affordable housing. These places are dense, quirky and full of character.
Historic places make for great communities and Preservation Maryland is working hard to help Marylanders of all stripes to reuse historic buildings and find ways to use our past to make for a better future. Join today to help us fight for our state’s communities.
