At the end of a lane on the outskirts of Easton, a simple wood-frame structure stands as a national symbol of architectural tenacity.The Third Haven Meetinghouse, built between 1682 and 1684, is the oldest surviving structure in Maryland and one of the oldest frame houses of worship in the country. In the mid-1980s, it seemed doubtful the Quaker meeting site could last much longer because it had suffered extensive termite damage.Now it's ready for another 300 years of use, following a six-year, $500,000 restoration that won a national Honor Award last year from the National Trust for Historic Preservation -- one of the country's highest honors for preservation work.

A lot of restoration work remains to be done on the station, which once was a stop for passengers on the Western Maryland Railroad's "Old Dutch Line" from Glyndon to Hanover, Pa. But after more than six years of work, a local official who spearheaded the renovation is predicting a spring ceremonial opening for the building as a museum and visitors center.

ISSUE: -- The Maryland Stadium Authority recently recommended demolishing or moving a 19th-century home in downtown Annapolis to make way for an estimated $20 million National Sailing Hall of Fame. Its long-awaited report said that trying to incorporate the modest house, one of the original pieces of the waterfront streetscape and now used as office space for the Department of Natural Resources Police, would be too challenging. Lee Tawney, executive director of the National Sailing Hall of Fame, said his group is consulting with the Maryland Historical Trust on the best way to move forward on plans to develop the site, while respecting its historic nature.
