Help Preserve The Baltimore Hebrew Orphan Asylum

Vote online now!

In partnership with Coppin State University and the Jewish Museum of Maryland, Baltimore Heritage has nominated the Hebrew Orphan Asylum, an 1875 Victorian Romanesque building in Baltimore City, to the “This Place Matters Community Challenge.” The purpose of entering the This Place Matters contest is to bring attention to preservation in our communities as well as offer a chance for funding for rehabilitation.

If the Hebrew Orphan Asylum wins the most votes, Baltimore Heritage will receive $25,000 for the preservation of the landmark.

The contest is put on by the National Trust for Historic Preseration. To learn more about the Hebrew Orphan Asylum, CLICK HERE.

On October 28, the National Park Service officially added the Asylum to the National Register of Historic Places and is featuring the building as the “Weekly Highlight” on the National Register homepage. To continue our efforts to spread the word about this tremendous building, we have organized a new Friends of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum Facebook page where you can stay informed about the Hebrew Orphan Asylum and its future.
