The Maryland Historical Trust is hosting public meetings in June to solicit feedback about goals and recommended actions for the statewide preservation plan—a five-year guidance document for government agencies, non-profit advocates and others involved in historic preservation, archeology and cultural heritage.
Maryland’s statewide historic preservation conference will take place on Friday, June 15, 2018 and Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the Architecture Building at the University of Maryland campus in College Park, MD. For the first time, the Preservation Maryland Old Line State Summit will precede the Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions‘ annual Symposium and offer an unparalleled professional training opportunity for the preservation community of the Mid-Atlantic.
Maryland deserves well-preserved historic communities, sites, and architecture! The only way we’ll accomplish this is by working together in advocacy. Join Preservation Maryland and their local partners at these important town-hall style meetings to learn about local, state, and federal advocacy efforts to help save places that matter and how you can be a force for reinvestment and redevelopment.
Please join us for our 2016 Historic Preservation Awards Celebration at the Green Street Academy, the 1925 former Gwynns Falls High School that has been wonderfully restored for a 21st century charter school. This year, we are honoring a wide range of projects from a humble historic trolley stop in Roland Park to a city automotive garage turned makerspace for start up manufacturers in Port Covington. From single family homes to large hotels and theaters, the array of projects speaks volumes to the quantity and quality of restoration work going on in Baltimore. Read the full list of award-winning projects.
This year’s celebration is generously supported by our 2016 title sponsors: PNC and The Agora.

The celebration will take place on Thursday June 16, 2016 starting at 5:30 p.m. In addition to seeing the fantastic award-winning preservation work around Baltimore, we are offering guided tours so you can see first-hand how this 90-year-old school building now provides an innovative space for today’s students. And, of course, there will be plenty of good food and drink, and lots to celebrate.
There are very few places where you can stand in the middle of a room and almost everything you see is made or decorated by Tiffany. St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church on St. Paul Street, with its interior designed by the Tiffany Company of New York, is one of them.
