The Greater Baltimore Urban League (GBUL) is a civil rights organization located in the historic Orchard Street Church. The 1882 church has a long history of community engagement from hosting abolitionist meetings to its use today as home to the GBUL and the state chapter of the NAACP.
The Orchard Street Church is in need of urgent repairs and system upgrades. Preservation Maryland will help the Greater Baltimore Urban League honor the historic structure while developing a long-term plan to upgrade its headquarters for their current important work.
