Heritage Award Winner!

On January 13, Maryland Traditions, the traditional arts program of Maryland State Arts Council, announced the winners of its 2021 Heritage Awards, which recognize long-term achievement in the traditional arts. Three Heritage Awards are given annually: one each in the categories of Person or People, Place, and Tradition

We were thrilled to be recognized with the award in the "Place" category for our historic Dentzel carousel.
