National Trust for Historic Preservation
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has named Annapolis a national treasure.
Neighborhoods with smaller, older buildings generally perform better for the local economy than areas with newer buildings that stretch an entire block.
Washington National Cathedral and George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate have both won $100,000 grants among 24 sites around the nation’s capital competing for historic preservation funds.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express announced an initiative Wednesday to enlist area residents and visitors to help choose which buildings and landmarks receive preservation funding in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
