Preservation Maryland today announced it has received $150,000 in funding from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development’s Community Legacy Program for work on the historic structure known to the community as “Snoots House,” located in the Historic District of Brunswick, Maryland.
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.
