Profile of the Preservation Society

The Preservation Society is a non-profit 501(C)(3) historic preservation membership organization serving Baltimore''s two oldest maritime communities - Federal Hill and Fell''s Point.

The Preservation Society was founded in 1967 to stop the proposed extension of I-95 across the Inner Harbor. Had the Preservation Society not been successful in it''s ten year "road fight," the highway would have demolished the Federal Hill and Fell''s Point communities, leveled Federal Hill Park and blocked the development of the Inner Harbor. To accomplish this, the Society led the effort to have both communities listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fell''s Point was became a National Register Historic District in 1969 (making it the second historic district in the United States to receive that honor) and Federal Hill a year later.

For over forty years, the Preservation Society has worked to maintain the 18th and 19th century character of these historic structures. The Society continues to this day operating for charitable and educational purposes in the renewal and preservation of both Fell''s Point and Federal Hill as areas of particular historical and architectural significance for the benefit, education and appreciation of the general public.
