By Preservation Maryland

Preservation Maryland actively supports the documentation and preservation of Maryland’s sacred burial sites and will co-host a free cemetery documentation training workshop in Anne Arundel County later this month.

Recently, Preservation Maryland has worked to document 100 cemeteries across the state in a partnership with the State Highway Administration and is now focusing on burial sites in Anne Arundel County.

These efforts have been supported by Preservation Maryland staff through the organization’s Six-to-Fix program that recognized Maryland’s cemeteries as a unique threatened historic resources — and has been working with our partners to find tools and solutions that work locally and at the state level.

Register Now: Join Preservation Maryland, the Anne Arundel County Cultural Resources Division, the Anne Arundel Genealogical Society, and the Coalition to Protect Maryland Burial Sites for a free half-day training workshop to learn how to document and report cemetery location and conditions.
