Somerset Historical Trust - Our Role in the Community

Somerset Historical Trust assists in protecting existing historic properties against encroachment and developments encroaching on historic inventory.  The Trust also nominates certain historic properties in the county for inclusion in the National Registry for Historic Places - most recent nomination being Deal Island.


Working in Cooperation with the Maryland Historical Trust

As county advisory organization to the Maryland Historical Trust (also the State Historic Preservation Office), the Somerset Trust participates in various state and federal programs.

Your county neighbors assist local groups in administering state grant funds for restorations, monitoring preservation activities in the county and acting as liaison between the state and the county.
