Announcing Five Rural Preservation Pop-Up Offices

03/12/2019
By Preservation Maryland

Thanks to the generous support of the Rural Maryland Council, Preservation Maryland will again be hitting the road to setup temporary pop-up offices in rural parts of the state.

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. With continued support from the Rural Maryland Council, Preservation Maryland 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?

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. If you can’t make it to one of our pop-ups, please contact us with your preservation questions anytime of the year.
