Since its founding in 1844, publishing has been central to the mission of the Maryland Historical Society, which owns and operates the Maryland Center for History and Culture. Currently, more than 100 book titles in the Library of Congress collection bear the Maryland Historical Society’s imprint. These engaging, thoroughly researched stories continue to contribute to our knowledge of Maryland’s past.
