To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, Preservation Maryland is using our 21th-century tools and an inclusive historic approach to elevate the complex history of Maryland’s suffragists and their lasting legacy on equality in the United States. The Ballot & Beyond project is powered by Preservation Maryland’s Six-to-Fix program with additional support by Gallagher, Evelius & Jones.
In late January 2020, in coordination with Maryland Women’s Legislative Caucus, Preservation Maryland organized a special event with leading suffrage historians in Annapolis to commemorate and share the multi-dimension history of the passage of the 19th Amendment.
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.
As America approaches the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, Preservation Maryland will host a traveling lecture series with historian Kacy Rohn which will unravel the history of the suffrage movement in Maryland and a look at the historic places where this story unfolded.
