Thank You to Heritage Montgomery

MHAA logo

Peerless Rockville thanks Heritage Montgomery for recently received
grant funds that have enabled us to digitize Urban Renewal records, purchase a handheld scanner to digitize over-sized documents and artifacts, a portable screen for upcoming heritagemontgomerylogoprograms, and two new light-weight microphones for walking tours (including our recent Heritage Days walking tours).

This project has been financed in part with funds from Heritage Montgomery and Montgomery County Government and in part with State Funds from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority, an instrumentality of the State of Maryland. However, the contents and opinions do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority.
