Montgomery Preservation [MD]

"Montgomery Preservation [...], Montgomery County's only county-wide, private, nonprofit historic preservation organization, was originally composed of a small group of local residents who formed the Montgomery County Committee of the Maryland Historical Trust in the early 1970's to further preservation efforts in the county." Today, the organization works to preserve local history on two fronts. First, the organization runs the mid-20th-century Silver Spring B&O Railroad Station, which is open to the public once a month during the summer and fall months. Second, the organization works toward encouraging preservation among local individuals and organizations.

The site offers visitor information for the B&O Station, information about preservation awards, information about current organization advocacy projects, and an events calendar.
