Organization Background

Founded in 1931, Preservation Maryland has been a leader in the preservation movement of the state and nation ever since. The organization’s mission is the preservation of Maryland’s historic buildings, neighborhoods, landscapes and archeological sites through outreach, funding, and advocacy.

Preservation Maryland achieves its mission through an expanding group of core programs. The organization provides leadership to a large coalition of individuals and organizations at the state, county, city, and community level that advocate for critical causes. The organization’s podcast reaches tens of thousands of listeners annually and has produced over 200 episodes since its launch. Additionally, the organization hosts more than a dozen events, large and small, which provide training, award recognition and professional development to historic communities and their leaders.

Preservation Maryland also leads Smart Growth Maryland, a dynamic program which advocates for state and local policy priorities that directs new public and private investment in keeping with the principles of smart growth. The organization partners with Maryland’s leading historic preservation, environmental conservation and land preservation organizations to help achieve this mission.

The organization makes flexible grants to support the preservation of Maryland history and historic properties in partnership with local nonprofit organizations, community groups and churches. A historic property redevelopment program now allows the organization to take direct action to protect threatened historic properties through acquisition, loans and partnerships.

Most recently, the organization became the charitable partner of the National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Training Center. This partnership, operating as a program called the Campaign for Historic Trades allows the organization to support the advancement of historic trades training which can open pathways to successful careers for young adults and returning veterans.
