The National Trust for Historic Preservation named the iconic city of Annapolis, Maryland one of its National Treasures. Annapolis was selected as a National Treasure because of its historic and cultural significance which is witnessed and appreciated by thousands of residents and tourists each year. This distinction also ensures extra protection for its historic infratructures from the threat of flooding and other severe weather events.
Annapolis is one of the oldest cities in the country and contains the largest collection of 18th century structures of any American city. When the Department of the Interior named the city a National Historic Landmark in 1965, it noted that historic Annapolis represents, “virtually every residential architectural style from the early 18th century through to the first third of the 20th century.”
“The National Trust is proud to name Annapolis to its portfolio of National Treasures,” said Stephanie Meeks, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “Annapolis is one of America’s most beloved and visited historic communities. Though the threat of rising sea levels remains, city leaders and local partners already have created a national model, demonstrating how other cities can plan to minimize the negative effects of climate change on historic buildings. We look forward to working alongside the City of Annapolis and others to raise awareness of the unique threats to cultural resources posed by climate change, and sharing these valuable lessons with other historic communities across the country.”
As the presenting partner of the National Treasures program, American Express has also pledged $2 million to help promote and enable the preservation of these cultural and historic places.
City and community leaders are working hard to ensure the economic viability and historic character of the city, while sustaining the heritage tourism economy.
