    Here's our Chairman's announcement about the scheduled date for our 2021 Annual Meeting -- please hold Friday, September 24th on your calendars - starting at 4 pm at Williams Conquest (home of Randy & Smaro George):

    With the coming of spring, I hope that you too are sensing a re-energizing of moods and attitudes after a year of forced hibernation. However, we still find ourselves restrained from having the in-person gatherings where we have traditionally shared ideas and plans.

    Last May we were unable to hold our annual Trust Meeting, and again this year May seems too early to resume this cherished event. Our present solution is to have our regular gathering at Williams Conquest on Friday, September 24th. Please save this date and it is subject to change. Note that we will follow all outdoor safety advisories.

    As part of our ongoing commitment to historic preservation, we are happy to present one of our newest projects -- our Contractors & Services Directory -- which lists technicians and services relating to care of older historically important homes.  The directory is available in the Resources section of our website.

    Here's the cover and sample page from the directory:

    Though we cannot guarantee any of the work provided, we believe that this roster can be of immense help to our Trust members.

    The County Times has recently featured a wonderful article about historic Makepeace, in Crisfield, that we'd like to share with you.

    • We also have information about Makepeace on our Featured Properties page of our website:  Makepeace

    As the oldest home in Crisfield, Makepeace is an enduring example of mid-18th century vernacular architecture on the Eastern Shore. The house was likely built by Jacob Cullen shortly after 1740 on a patent called Cullen’s Lott near Johnson’s Creek.  

    The Makepeace property is currently under contract and we all look forward to a successful sale of the property.
