Since launching our preservation awards program in 1961, Baltimore Heritage has recognized over 300 preservation and heritage projects in Baltimore. We give awards to projects and people who preserve and promote Baltimore’s heritage and historic places. This includes DIY rowhouse rehabbers, historic preservation crusaders, history curriculum writers, those who restore our city’s historic buildings and everything in between! This work and the people behind it are at the heart of historic Baltimore.
