Our Work

Focused Effort. Measurable Impact.

Through strategic programming and partnerships, we’re using historic places to confront critical societal challenges so our diverse heritage can be commemorated, preserved, and enjoyed for generations to come.

Preserving Place

Our Historic Property Redevelopment Program is a catalyst for revitalization, making direct investments in historic places across the state that will also solve modern challenges.

Historic Trades Workforce Development

Through our innovative national workforce development initiative The Campaign for Historic Trades, we are working to expand and strengthen careers in the high-demand field of historic trades by resolving access barriers.

Championing Change

Year after year we make significant policy advances for preservation in Maryland, while securing an unprecedented amount of funding for preservation efforts across the state.


Preservation Maryland administers several grant programs that provide a unique stable source of funding for preservation, planning, public history, and other innovative revitalization and conversation projects across the state.
