This property is a Prince George’s County-designated Historic Site (Wilson-Ferrier-Windsor House, HS 68-010-80) and is regulated under County Code Subtitle 29 (historic preservation ordinance). This designation attaches to the entire parcel on which the building is located, not just the building itself.
Most work on the exterior of a designated historic site is subject to review by the County’s Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) through an Historic Area Work Permit (HAWP). Many work items can be approved at the staff level, with more significant alterations requiring a hearing by the HPC at one of their monthly meetings. Here is a link to more information on the HAWP process. Please note that although certain work items are deemed “ordinary maintenance” and thus are exempt from the HAWP requirement, it’s always a good idea to contact the HPC first to confirm whether a certain project fits that description. Work that is purely interior does not require an HAWP; however, if interior work will result in any change to the exterior features, those exterior changes must be approved in an HAWP.
Historic site owners have the opportunity to take advantage of the County’s preservation tax credit, which is awarded in an amount equal to 25 percent of the approved expenses you incur for approved rehabilitation work. More information on the tax credit can be found here.
Historic site owners are also eligible to apply to the County’s Historic Property Grant Program, which provides reimbursement of up to $50,000 for approved projects in exchange for conveying a perpetual preservation easement on the property. More information on the grant program can be found here.
