Maryland Historical Trust Roadshow

Interested in preservation? Have you ever wondered what exactly the Maryland Historical Trust does? Do you know what a State Historic Preservation Office is? Do you represent a government agency or non-profit organization with an historic property or archeological site that needs help? Do you want to learn more about historic and cultural properties in your area? Have you ever wanted to make sure your voice was heard when historic places were under threat?

The MHT Roadshow is a great way to learn about MHT's programs, training and grant funding opportunities. Working with a host agency or organization, staff select short presentations tailored to the audience's needs. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, network and participate! You can browse current Roadshow offerings below – more are on the way. If you have specific training needs that are not reflected here, please let us know.
