State Awards $250,000 Grant to Preservation Maryland to Preserve Historic Ellicott City Jail

The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development has awarded $250,000 to Preservation Maryland to partner with Howard County on the revitalization of the historic Ellicott City Jail, a circa 1850 structure at 1 Emory Street. The grant will be used to assess feasibility for reuse of the Jail as well as architectural/engineering, stabilization or rehabilitation activities that support future reuse.

“Ellicott City has always perfectly balanced old and new. As we explored plans to reuse the historic Courthouse in Ellicott City, it became clear that the old Jail on the adjacent property provided a unique opportunity to preserve and examine a piece of our history,” said Howard County Executive Calvin Ball. “This grant award is a great first step in the process, and we’re grateful to Preservation Maryland for their partnership on this effort and commitment to moving this project forward.”

While the grant supports initial design services and stabilization, Preservation Maryland also plans to utilize state, federal, and private funds to complete the projects; the organization is currently pursuing a bond bill sponsored by Senator Katie Fry Hester in the amount of $500,000 in the 2022 Legislative Session.

The historic Jail will be revitalized to support the surrounding community while the County and non-profit explore use as a center for climate, heritage, and preservation studies. Due to the challenges confronted by Ellicott City, the location is an ideal place to site this type of effort and reuse a vacant historic structure.
