Historic Properties Program

The Department of General Services is committed to the preservation of Baltimore’s architectural heritage. The Historic Properties Program provides in-house technical support for the preservation of fourteen historic landmarks owned by the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore. By supporting facilities maintenance and construction projects, the Historic Properties Program ensures that stewardship of Baltimore's historic and cultural treasures is maintained to federal, state, and local historic preservation standards.

DGS is committed to reinvesting in Baltimore’s landmarks so that they may continue to serve the citizens of Baltimore. The city’s historic properties are not only treasured as artifacts of our collective past but are also enhanced and used for the contemporary benefit of the public.

Take a look at our interactive map and click on the images to find out more about the properties.

The program actively partners with private and public entities to assist with the preservation of these landmarks. Many of the historic buildings are used for municipal purposes or are leased to community partners for heritage tourism.
