Historic structures require significant repair and upkeep – but with routine maintenance the time and expense associated with those repairs can be substantially reduced. Equally important as maintaining the structure is making sure that those repairs are safe for historic buildings. Often, preservation-safe repairs cost the same or slightly more but can save property owners in the long-run. These preservation best practices are not a comprehensive or complete guide to every issue a property owner will confront but are a jumping off point for your next preservation project.
Preservation Maryland and the Maryland Historical Trust are pleased to award over $50,000 in grant funds to several significant heritage tourism destinations, including Main Streets, open spaces, historic sites, and cultural attractions.
