The Historic Preservation Committee uses history–including architectural preservation, community storytelling and oral history, and preserving and celebrating community culture–to make the Southwest Partnership neighborhoods attractive places where people want to be.

In 2021 the Committee is focusing on:

  • The renovation of the Malachi Mills House at 1504 W Baltimore St into a cultural destination center
  • The creation of an online portal to collect, share, and celebrate the specifically Black history of the Southwest Partnership neighborhoods
  • Recording, re-discovering, sharing, and preserving the history of the Poppleton neighborhood in partnership with the Poppleton Now! neighborhood association and the University of Maryland Baltimore County
  • Supporting the architectural preservation of key buildings along W. Baltimore St
  • The stabilization of the Bruce St Arabber Stables and supporting the stable owners in their planned growth
