Preservation News: Sen. Cardin Introduces Tax Credit to Encourage Revitalization of Distressed Homes Nationwide
Convening the Old Line State Summit at the U.S. Naval Academy this July was an honor for Preservation Maryland and a privilege to share the unique opportunity to spend the day on the historic campus. Many of the sessions have been recorded and presentations made available as free resources to the preservation community.
The Old Line State Summit is Maryland’s historic preservation conference and is a comprehensive and immersive day of training that covers a range of relevant topics – and from those topics replicable methods and practices that can be applied to many challenges that face Maryland’s historic communities.
As always, these presentations are enhanced by those attendees that bring and share their own experiences during lively Q&A sessions. The networking and connections that takes place during a statewide conference can lead to new partnerships and an important exchange of ideas that strengthen preservation efforts statewide.
The Old Line Summit was organized and supported by Preservation Maryland with assistance from City of Annapolis, Four Rivers Heritage Area, Historic Annapolis, Maryland Historical Trust, University of Maryland.
