CULTURAL TOURISM STATISTICS

In the face of the ongoing pandemic, Preservation Maryland convened a task force of history, preservation, economic development, design, and tourism organizations to focus on identifying and advocating for public policy necessary to support the recovery of Maryland’s historical and cultural resources and the communities they support.

Maryland’s unique cultural attractions draw visitors from around the world and support countless local businesses while providing nearly $320 million in local and state tax revenue and generating $1.3 billion in economic activity annually.

MARYLAND & FEDERAL HISTORIC TAX CREDITS

Maryland’s historic tax credit is a ready-made tool for economic recovery in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Preservation Maryland is hard at work to ensure that the Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit remains funded for FY21.

Since its creation in 1996, this 20% tax credit program for the rehabilitation of historic structures has invested over $400 million in brick-and-mortar commercial redevelopment projects across nearly every jurisdiction in the state, created nearly 30,000 jobs, and yielded nearly $3.5 billion in economic activity.

COMPUTER BACKGROUNDS

Because, Zoom. As we all transition our work to virtual platforms, we can still have that vintage feel we love. Preservation Maryland has gathered some of our favorite images from vintage postcards from the National Trust Postcard Collection as well as from our extensive archive. Make your own from one of our thousands of images available under Creative Commons on our Flickr page.
