The Baltimore National Heritage Area administers four different grant programs each year that support historic preservation, heritage tourism, neighborhood greening, and economic development in Baltimore City. Two of those grants are open now.
The Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area received a Heritage Fund grant to craft a visitor experience plan for the historic Newcomer House on Antietam Battlefield. The historic 18th-century home served as a makeshift hospital during the battle and is now a visitor center for tourists exploring Western Maryland’s history and scenery.
The Maryland Historical Trust (MHT) recently released the new Statewide Preservation Plan, PreserveMaryland II, intended to guide preservation efforts across the state for the next five years. Preservation Maryland was part of the plan’s advisory committee, and we look forward to supporting the successful execution of the plan. We are proud that much of our ambitious and continued work is highlighted throughout PreserveMarylandII.
