Historic Annapolis, Inc. is looking to acquire a summer intern with a preservation or architectural history background to work with our Historic Building Marker program. This will begin as an unpaid internship, but has the possibility to evolve into a temporary paid position within the organization pending grant funding and intern performance.
Historic Annapolis Historic Marker Program has three main purposes. First, the markers identify buildings of architectural integrity that correctly illustrate the architectural history of Annapolis. Second, the markers encourage the preservation, restoration, and maintenance of properties within the historic district. Third, they help educate residents and visitors about Annapolis history and architectural styles. The marker program was begun in 1969 and there are now over 270 markers in the Historic District.
Through this summer internship, the intern chosen to work with this program will assist in conducting preliminary research on existing markers throughout the historic district. This will include: evaluating the architectural style of marker homes for historic accuracy, conducting conditions assessments on existing markers, improving our current historic marker database and adding new information where appropriate, among other related duties. After this preliminary research stage has been completed, interns will then assist in researching eligible properties that currently do not have Historic Markers.
This internship is available to both undergraduate and graduate students studying Historic Preservation, Architectural History, or a related field. You may choose to seek academic credit with this internship, but it is not required. If you will be seeking academic credit, please let us know of any requirements we will need to fulfill. We are looking for candidates to work a minimum of 120 hours through the months of June-August. This will begin as an unpaid internship, but we are willing provide flexible hours to compliment a candidates work schedule.
