Each year, the Coalition to Protect Maryland Burial Sites hosts a statewide conference to provide relevant resources and engaging new research to all those interested in the history and preservation of cemeteries in Maryland. Preservation Maryland is pleased to support the all-volunteer organization’s efforts by recording their conference sessions and helping share it with a wider audience – all in support of the Coalition’s mission.
In 2019, Preservation Maryland achieved several important victories across our major programs, including advocacy, grantmaking, smart growth, historic trades, and all of our research and education efforts. At any one-time, our staff is working on many active and on-going projects and what follows is just a sample of our donor-supported work of which we are most proud.
Preservation Maryland’s work takes us to some of Maryland’s most stunning historic places but also to important places that time has forgotten and to communities that need our help. We work every day to make preservation a priority in approaching the challenges and opportunities of every historic community across Maryland, from Baltimore to Brunswick. In this stunning video, Preservation Maryland is pleased to highlight some of our most important donor-supported work this year.
Wreaths Across America started in 1992 when a group of volunteers had a surplus of wreaths after adorning the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The movement is now supported by a national non-profit organization that helps organize wreath-laying ceremonies at over 1000 cemeteries including many in Maryland.
