The Peale Hosts Morgan State Students

MSU at the Peale

Students work to preserve Peale garden with National Trust

During the month of July, DGS and The Peale Center hosted the Hands On Preservation Experience (HOPE) crew. HOPE is a non-profit organization based out of Washington, DC that provides college students out-of-the-classroom experiences studying historic buildings or restoring spaces that need conservation. The crew was comprised of six architecture and planning students from Morgan State University. Their focus at the Peale was repairing the cracked and weakened masonry in the site’s back garden. Every day from 8 AM to 5 PM the students would  clean and lay restored brick. The project was a great experience for DGS, the Peale, and the HOPE crew as the garden has been restored to its former luster.
