The Preservation Society of Federal Hill and Fell's Point

Our Mission

“The Preservation Society works to preserve and renew Federal Hill and Fell’s Point as areas of historical and architectural significance for the benefit of local residents and businesses, and for the education and enjoyment of visitors & the public at large.”

Our Profile

The Preservation Society is a non-profit 501(C)(3) historic preservation membership organization serving Baltimore's two oldest maritime communities - Federal Hill and Fell's Point.

The Preservation Society was founded in 1967 to stop the proposed extension of I-95 across the Inner Harbor. Had the Preservation Society not been successful in its ten year "road fight," the highway would have demolished the Federal Hill and Fell's Point communities, leveled Federal Hill Park, and blocked the development of the Inner Harbor. To accomplish this, the Society led the effort to have both communities listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fell's Point became a National Register Historic District in 1969 (making it the second historic district in the United States to receive that honor), and Federal Hill a year later.

For well over forty years, the Preservation Society has worked to maintain the 18th and 19th century character of these historic structures. The Society continues to this day operating for charitable and educational purposes in the renewal and preservation of both Federal Hill and Fell's Point as areas of particular historical and architectural significance for the benefit, education, and appreciation of the general public.
