Preservation Maryland

Preservation Maryland

Preservation Maryland is a statewide non-profit working to protect Maryland’s unique and irreplaceable heritage while creating a more equitable and sustainable future. Through strategic programming and partnerships, the organization is using the best of our past to solve some of today’s biggest challenges, including the effects of climate change, affordable housing, and workforce development.

Although the organization’s core mission remains the same as when we started in 1931, our work has adapted, our strategies have diversified, and our approach has modernized. We remain at the forefront of the preservation movement, creatively working to preserve place, effect policy change, and grow the historic preservation workforce so our shared history can be enjoyed for untold generations to come.
