Celebrate 20 years of Maryland's

Heritage Areas 

Join us to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Maryland Heritage Areas and their community development impact in Maryland. There are 13 Heritage Areas in Maryland who work with partners in the Heritage Areas.

(from the Maryland Heritage Areas website): Maryland’s Heritage Areas are places to experience – to see, hear and even taste – the authentic heritage of Maryland in a unique way that you cannot experience anywhere else. Heritage Areas are where the stories of the people, the land and the waters of Maryland, which have been intertwined for thousands of years, are told. In Heritage Areas individuals, businesses, non-profits and governments form partnerships to preserve the best of Maryland's historic sites and towns, unspoiled natural landscapes and enduring traditions. These tangible links to both place and the past encourage residents to recognize they have a special piece of the American story to treasure and share with others, and that in doing so they create more livable and economically sustainable communities.
