Happy ! Every week we will be highlighting one of the 10 projects awarded a Historic Revitalization Tax Credit for FY2024. This week features the McCleave Building located in the Downtown Cumberland Historic District. It was designed before 1875 and is one of two Italianate style structures along Baltimore Street. Its most prominent feature is a highly decorative cornice along the street-facing facades and upper window ornamentation – both will be preserved and restored as part of the overall rehabilitation project. Currently vacant, this project will create a boutique 20-room hotel and restaurant space, revitalizing both this prominent structure as well as Cumberland’s downtown historic corridor.

Please be aware of the early closure this afternoon at Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum.

Chad and Steve are hard at work hanging this newly completed mosaic mural in our Visitor Center. A reception and official unveiling of the artwork is scheduled for February 3rd! This public art project is the result of months of collaboration by staff and volunteers. Over 200 community members colored over 576 squares which were combined to produce this beautiful and colorful work entitled "Tending the Field". The original design was created by artist Phyllis Zhu. This project was made possible by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council and the Friends of Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum. Come see it for yourself!

Please remember that the Visitor Center will reopen Wednesday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. starting January 17th.

Henry Hotel Foundation Scores $250K Grant For Restoration Efforts.
Maryland Board of Public Works approved $5 million in African American Heritage Preservation Program funding to 24 projects and organizations across the state. A $250,000 grant will allow a local nonprofit to begin the restoration of the historic Henry Hotel in Ocean City. Gov. Wes Moore praised the foundation’s efforts to restore an iconic landmark in which the project brings the foundation one step closer to creating a museum and learning center highlighting African American history within the resort. The AAHPP program is administered through the Maryland Historical Trust, a division of MDP.
