Event Photos: Best of Maryland Awards at The Flag House

By Preservation Maryland

On Thursday, May 17, 2018, Preservation Maryland hosted its 33rd annual Best of Maryland awards ceremony to a a record crowd at the historic Star-Spangled Banner Flag House in Baltimore City. The event was attended by over 200 preservationists, community leaders, elected officials and fans of Maryland’s heritage. This year’s award winners represented a diverse array of projects and historic resources from across the state – from a restored Opera House to the iconic Domino Sugar sign standing high above the Baltimore skyline.


For a third year in a row, the organization also recognized legislative champions at the federal and state level who have shown exceptional leadership on challenging preservation issues. United States Senator Ben Cardin was recognized for the role he played in saving the federal historic tax credit from elimination along with Maryland Senator Bill Ferguson and Maryland Delegate Alonzo T. Washington for their support of landmark legislation that increased the state historic tax credit’s support of affordable housing in historic structures.
