The mission of the Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions (MAHDC) is to provide advocacy, training and program support for historic preservation commissions and local governments across the state. Formed in 1979, MAHDC serves 47 Commissions, representing both urban and local historic districts, local governments, commissioners, residents and owners of historic properties. Our basic philosophy is that by working together, Maryland’s historic district commissions can help one another become more effective protectors of the historic resources in each of their own communities.
Over the past year, MAHDC has worked with our preservation partners to develop the first part of a two-tiered training and educational program for HPCs. We are pleased to report that the tutorial is now complete and can be accessed here. Read about the new program and download associated materials right from our site.
