Washington County Launches “Love Historic” Campaign for Historic Preservation Month

Washington County Launches “Love Historic” Campaign for Historic Preservation Month

HAGERSTOWN, MD (April 25, 2024) – In honor of Historic Preservation Month in May, Washington County is excited to announce the launch of the “Love Historic” campaign. The campaign invites citizens to share photos of their favorite historic buildings in Washington County to be featured on the county’s website and social media platforms.

To participate in the “Love Historic” campaign, individuals are asked to visit www.washco-md.net/preservation-month to fill out a simple online form. All entries must include a photo of the building, along with a brief description of why it is meaningful to the participant.

Photos will be shared on the Washington County website and across social media throughout May to celebrate Historic Preservation Month, offering a unique opportunity to showcase the county’s historical gems. Participants are encouraged to use the hashtag #washcolovehistoric when sharing their submissions on social media.

For more information about the “Love Historic” campaign, please visit www.washco-md.net/preservation-month. We look forward to seeing the wonderful historic sites that matter to our residents and visitors!

For additional information, please contact Washington County’s Public Relations and Marketing Department at 240-313-2380.
