2020 may be remembered as a painful and challenging year – but it also may be remembered as a year when Americans acknowledged that history still desperately matters.
It’s no secret that we are living through an unprecedented moment in time; a virulent pandemic; partisan gridlock and conflict; a reckoning with our past and the legacy of our heritage. Central to these challenges and opportunities which we confront is the value, significance and power of history.
Organizations like Preservation Maryland aren’t just preserving the past – we’re investing in our future. In just the past year we’ve invested heavily in our work and refused to accept the mounting challenges as a reason to retreat or hold our position.
