The William H. Burtis House

Preserving Irreplaceable History in Annapolis

As part of our Historic Property Redevelopment Program, Preservation Maryland is taking on a leading role in a dynamic climate resiliency project at City Dock in Annapolis, Maryland. There, Preservation Maryland will oversee the stabilization and elevation of the historic Burtis House once the in-progress transfer of ownership from the State to the City of Annapolis is complete. The project is a key component of the larger revitalization and resiliency plans for City Dock. In 2020, the organization received a $100,000 grant from the Maryland Heritage Area Authority and $75,000 from the State of Maryland to fund the project and is also partnering with the Chesapeake Bay Office of the National Park Service on this important effort.
