By Preservation Maryland
Preservation Maryland is conducting a study to document the architecture and history of public K-12 schools built in Maryland before 1980. Maryland’s historic schools tell a profound story about the history of our state and are intrinsically interconnected with the communities in which they reside. The structures themselves are the physical vestiges and reminders of how we have approached education and grappled with complex and challenging issues, from managing growth to racial integration and beyond. This project will provide a framework for evaluating the architectural and historic significance of the state’s public schools and a roadmap for future preservation activities.
