Scientific research recently uncovered that the timbers used to construct Preservation Maryland’s property at 417 North Jonathan Street were originally felled in the winter of 1739/40. Which begs the question: What was happening in America in 1739?
Organizations like Preservation Maryland aren’t just preserving the past – we’re investing in our future. In just the past year we’ve invested heavily in our work and refused to accept the mounting challenges as a reason to retreat or hold our position. But – trust me as I say this – we simply cannot rest on our past victories. The future demands action – and with your support, we will make 2021 a year to celebrate.
Earlier this Fall, Preservation Maryland had the opportunity to partner with CIRCA Old Houses to raise funds for our Revolving Fund. Thanks to the generosity of over 200 people across the country, we raised over $5,000 to support our property redevelopment projects.
