On Tuesday, December 5, 2017, Preservation Maryland hosted a live telephone town hall that reached thousands of listeners to discuss the latest threats to the federal Historic Tax Credit and how we can all be advocates for this essential program. If you missed the call, you can listen and share the recording online now.
The Society for the Preservation of Old Mills (SPOOM) has identified over 500 mills throughout Maryland — only a fraction of which are still standing. This exercise illustrates the need to preserve Maryland’s industrial heritage like Preservation Maryland is helping to do along the Jones Falls in Baltimore City.
Window Restoration Workshop at Cozy Inn Cabin
07/28/2016 By Preservation Maryland
A piece of pure roadside Maryland was lost earlier this year with the demolition of the Cozy Inn, but the Thurmont Historical Society worked hard to save an original roadside cabin. The small cabin would have been used by early 20th century highway travelers, and you can be a part of it’s restoration!
