In 2004, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named the Tobacco Barns of Southern Maryland to its list of the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. As a result of this listing, a coalition of representatives from the National Trust, the Maryland Historical Trust, the Southern Maryland Heritage Areas Consortium, and Anne Arundel, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s counties was formed to support barn owners in their efforts to preserve, rehabilitate, and reuse these significant landmarks that are now often abandoned and deteriorating due to the significant decline in tobacco cultivation.

The 2010 Tobacco Barns Summit is a follow up to the initial gathering held on November 15, 2004, and will continue the discussion on how to best promote barn reuse and promote agricultural land preservation. The summit will feature:

•Presentation on the history of tobacco barns

•tobaco barn reuse success stories

•showcase of available resources for tobacco barns

•discussion and brainstorming on future strategies
