Six-to-Fix: Meet the New Class of Maryland Treasures

10/02/2018
By Preservation Maryland

As a part of Preservation Maryland’s strategic efforts to save threatened historic places, the organization recently announced its fourth class of Six-to-Fix projects from around the state.

The Six-to-Fix program, which continues to evolve and expand since its launch in 2015, now represents a diverse portfolio of projects from around the state where Preservation Maryland has assisted in supporting efforts to preserve threatened historic resources. From cultural landscapes on Maryland’s eastern shore to a WWII-era crane in Baltimore’s harbor, the program has succeeded in advancing preservation at dozens of sites around the state. Previous year’s projects are also quickly becoming a repository of best practices and case studies for community preservation – providing local preservation groups around the state with opportunities to learn from their peers.

The latest projects are equally as diverse as previous sites and represent the latest evolution in the history of the program which has adapted to meet the varying needs of different historic resources. 

New Projects

SAVE CITY DOCK IN THE ANNAPOLIS NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK DISTRICT

This summer, the National Trust for Historic Preservation listed the City of Annapolis, Maryland as one of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places due to the proposed rezoning of the historic waterfront. Preservation Maryland will continue to work with local, state and national partners to identify alternatives to the rezoning that balance growth and preservation and protect this critical historic resource.

THE BEATTY-CRAMER HOUSE

The circa 1732 Beatty-Cramer House is one of Maryland’s most unique historic homes – a stunning blend of Dutch and English architecture. Owned by the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation, the building needs a new use and purpose. Preservation Maryland will support a new vision for the site and work with the Foundation to identify a sustainable and long-term reuse plan.

FINDing FORT TOLONOWAY

Fort Tonolway was a frontier fortification built by English colonists in 1755, but abandoned just a year later when nearby Fort Frederick was established. Over time, the precise location of the fort was lost to history. Preservation Maryland will work with the Maryland Park Service, American Battlefield Protection Program, and other partners to embark on an archaeological exploration.

LGBTQ HERITAGE DOCUMENTATION

LGBTQ HERITAGE DOCUMENTATION

Nationally, there are only 15 historic sites recognized for LGBTQ history out of a collection of more than 1.8 million listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Preservation Maryland will lead a collaborative of academic, municipal, and community stakeholders in a statewide strategy to identify, research, document, and include the important places and contributions of LGBTQ people in the official record of American life.
