Baltimore Heritage is a small non-profit organization that works to preserve historic places and revitalize historic neighborhoods across the city. Established in 1960 by a group of civic leaders concerned by destructive urban renewal and highway projects, Baltimore Heritage is membership-supported and continues to work closely with residents and community organizations. Baltimore Heritage promotes the reuse of historic buildings with both advocacy and direct assistance to property owners and community organizations.
