We are in Savannah, Georgia this week to spend a couple of days learning with fellow preservationists at the PastForward 2014 conference organized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Baltimore and Maryland are well represented at the conference by staff from the Maryland Historical Trust, Preservation Maryland and, of course, Johns and me!
Since we couldn’t bring you all with us, we wanted to share a few photos from the first few days of our trip – including rowhouses, parks, monuments and more! You can also participate in the conference from home as a virtual attendee.
Thank you to the nearly 500 people came out and participated in Doors Open Baltimore 2014 tours this past weekend. Congratulations to AIA Baltimore on an exciting first year and we are excited to continue our partnership for Doors Open Baltimore in 2015. In thehistoric mill village of Woodberry, the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance offered a full day of walking tours led by Nathan Dennies including stops at Clipper Mill and Union Mill. Participants had the chance to pick up the brand-new Greater Hampden History Tour brochure available now along the Avenue.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance Open House on Friday! Special thanks to all of the generous local businesses and supporters who contributed the silent auction. Stay tuned for more updates as we put together an exciting new heritage brochure for Hampdenfest next month!
Thank you to everyone who joined us last month at the Baltimore Design School for our annual Preservation Awards Celebration. Special thanks to Melissa Gerr who volunteered to capture a few great photographs of the evening. Enjoy!
