Protecting, preserving, interpreting and restoring the historically significant resources and assets of Lake Roland for future generations.
Goals & Objectives:
The park is fortunate to have an impressive collection of rare historically significant assets and features. It also has two National Register Historic Districts. The Historic Preservation Committee focuses on policy issues related to the following:
- Interpretation, documentation, and protection of historic resources.
- Management and plans for historic assets that are potentially threatened in the park.
- Partnering with other Nature Council committees to implement best practices including measures to ensure the preservation, restoration, and protection of historical resources in the park.
- Establishing strategic alliances with area organizations including the Natural History Society of Maryland, the Historical Society of Baltimore County, the Baltimore Museum of Industry and the Baltimore City Historical Society to hold events and demonstration projects in the park.
The Historic Preservation Committee meets the second Thursday of each month. The Committee can be contacted at [email protected].
