In the 1960s Prince George’s was the fasted growing in the country – that’s one of the reasons why there’s a great collection of modern buildings!

Preservation Maryland hosted a bus tour on September 26 through Prince George’s and Montgomery County to wonderful, but often threatened, mid-century modern buildings and communities, including the Greenbelt Museum, M-NCPPC Headquarters, Washington Suburban Sanitation Commission, the Hyattsville Library, the National Library of Medication, and Carderock Springs residential community, near Bethesda. The tour was developed and led by Melanie Lytle, Executive Director of the Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions, and annually offers a course on Modernism for Maryland’s Historic Preservation Commissions.”
