Preservation Maryland is working with the Thurmont Historical Society and Doug Claytor to run a hands-on historic window workshop on Saturday, September 17. We’re going to get to work on the Cozy Inn cabin that the Historical Society was able to save when the Inn was demolished earlier this year. So there’s a couple of reasons that this is a cool workshop.

Historic Window Restoration Workshop
Saturday, September 17, 10-1pm

Be part of the restoration of a 1929 cabin from the Cozy Inn and Restaurant and learn historic window restoration at a hands-on educational 1/2 day workshop with Douglas Claytor of Claytor Historic Preservation Institute. Hosted by Preservation Maryland and the Thurmont Historical Society.
