Baltimore Heritage is pleased to honor projects, large and small, all over the Baltimore this year. Awards include the meticulous masonry restoration of the Old Pine Street Police Station just a few blocks from Lexington Market; the conversion of a school into a transitional housing facility; and the restoration and combination of alley houses in East Baltimore. We are also recognizing outstanding contributions from the Baltimore Brick by Brick blog to the volunteers with the Herring Run Archaeology Project. We hope you can join us!
