Arundel sites planner, park station honored

The Maryland Historical Trust has presented a 1992 Preservation Service Award to Anne Arundel County historic sites planner Donna M. Ware and a Preservation Project Award to the B&A Trail Park's Earleigh Heights Station.

Both awards were announced Friday at Maryland's 1992 Preservation Conference and Commercial Revitalization Training Program dinner at Loews Annapolis Hotel.

Ms. Ware was recognized for her dedication to preserving the heritage of the state and Anne Arundel County. Her accomplishments include a book, "Anne Arundel's Legacy: The Historic Properties of Anne Arundel County." She also is the chairwoman of the Annapolis Historic District Commission.

The Earleigh Heights Station was deteriorating and threatened with demolition when the county's Office of Planning and Zoning and the Department of Recreation and Parks bought and restored it. Built in 1896, the building served as Frost's Store and as a B&A Railroad station. Now, it is a ranger station for the B&A Trail Park.
