Two Baltimore County nonprofits have been awarded state grant funding for historic preservation projects, the Maryland Humanities announced last week.

The Patapsco Heritage Greenway, which oversees the Patapsco Valley Heritage Area, and the Hampton National Historic Site in Towson received $1,200 each in mini-grants from the Maryland Humanities, two of a total 13 state nonprofits that were awarded more than $74,000 for various state initiatives in six counties and Baltimore City. Maryland Humanities is a statewide nonprofit supported through the National Endowment for the Humanities, the state of Maryland and donors.

Patapsco Heritage will use the money to support Patapsco Days, a series of events, lectures and exhibits celebrating the history of the Patapsco Valley throughout March, said Lindsey Baker, executive director for Patapsco Heritage Greenway.
