Donate to the Maryland House & Garden Pilgrimage
Dear Friends, Patrons, and Benefactors of the Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage,
The central committee of the Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage (MHGP) is once again engaged
with counties around the state to provide an exciting 2024 spring tour season. A selection of six Maryland
counties will feature tours of distinction with many beautiful and historic homes and gardens for the
enjoyment of our pilgrims. We would like to offer you the opportunity to join us in the work of historic
preservation around the state of Maryland. Last year’s tours allowed us to distribute over $58,000 to
important projects preserving and highlighting pieces of Maryland history.
In January the central committee members met at the Maryland Center for History and Culture in
Baltimore to donate our organization’s archive to their permanent collection including meeting minutes,
magazine articles featuring the tours, scrapbooks and all tour books from the beginning of the MHGP.
Researchers will have access to this valuable resource and each year the MHGP will continue to add to
the collection by contributing the year’s current tour book to their library.
We are pleased to announce our 2024 tours:
April 28 Baltimore County, Towson Area–to benefit the Fire Museum of Md, Lutherville
May 4 Cecil County–to benefit Historic Rodger’s Tavern, Colonial Charlestown’s 107 House and
