The 2015 Conference for the National Trust for Historic Preservation begins tomorrow in Washington DC! The conference will go on until the 6th. On the last day, there will be a bus tour of five Maryland Rosenwald Schools. Maryland had a relatively small number of Rosenwald schools (156), but a larger percentage of surviving schools than other states. The tour will visit two schools in Prince George’s County, including Ridgeley School, a model restoration project, and three in Anne Arundel County, with lunch served at the Galesville School. Local school experts will lead tours of the sites, and two authors, who have written about Rosenwald Schools, will discuss their research. Lunch provided.
