On Friday, February 22nd, HEC board members and officers toured historic Carrollton Hall and presented a check for $30,000 to Joseph Hamilton, Director of Mission Advancement for the Franciscan Friars Conventual of the Our Lady of the Angels Province.

These funds, combined with a past HEC donation, are going toward the continued renovation and establishment of The Heritage Room in Carrollton Hall.

Historic Ellicott City, Inc. is proud to be a part of this effort to preserve and share this landmark with the community and visitors alike.

 


HEC has started to look for the next historic home that will serve as our 2019 Show House.  If you have a prospect for us to consider, please review the criteria below and send us an e-mail to let us know. 

  • The property must be located in Howard County
  • Historic significance and age—generally at least 50 years old
  • Exterior appeal that will attract visitors
  • Adequate size to accommodate perhaps 100 visitors per day
  • A floor plan that allows for a comfortable flow for visitors
  • Adequate level parking for approx. 100 cars, preferably on the premises or safe off-street with safe ingress and egress to public roads
  • Basement, barns or other outbuildings to accommodate vendors
  • All utilities must be turned on with at least one working bathroom
  • Homes in need of cosmetic not structural improvement
  • We do not replace kitchens, baths or hardwood floors
  • Homes that are or will be completely empty for the design work
  • A home that will be vacated by owners July through late October
  • The owner will be presented with a “design board” to review for each room
