Preservation Maryland will host a preservation pop-up office at Beans in the Belfry on Tuesday, May 7, 2019. The public is encouraged to visit the pop-up office anytime between 10AM and 4PM to speak with a member of Preservation Maryland’s professional staff about their historic preservation and historic property questions. No appointment is needed.
With financial support from the Rural Maryland Council, Preservation Maryland and is pleased to partner with several organizations around the state to make this year’s pop-up project possible.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT A POP-UP OFFICE?
Pop-up offices are a newer concept based on similar ideas from the retail world — the idea is to quickly setup shop and become more accessible to the community. Preservation Maryland staff will setup shop and work remotely from the pop-up space. Members of the public are encouraged to drop-in to learn more about the work of the organization and to talk to professional staff about questions or concerns they may have about preservation issues in their community. Staff will assist visitors and help connect them to existing resources. Information on state and non-profit preservation programs will be on-hand as well as information about Preservation Maryland’s many initiatives and educational opportunities.
WHEN CAN YOU VISIT A POP-UP OFFICE?
We’ll host five pop-up offices between May and June this year. Most offices will be open from 10AM to 4PM and in some cases, be paired with an evening lecture or event. Please check for locations and times below and plan to visit one or more. Preservation Maryland staff will be on hand to talk and meet with anyone who stops in. Members of the public are encouraged to drop-in and no appointment is necessary. Your optional RSVP on Facebook helps spread the word but is not required. If you can’t make it to one of our pop-ups, please contact us with your preservation questions anytime of the year.
