This portal was submitted as a portal and was rejected because it diod not meet the guidelines.

I would submit that it is because it is historically important to our city and part of what makes this city so great to those of us who live here.

Columbia, MD was founded in the 1960's as a new way to do cities. And with this, the education system of Howard County was reinvented. The city and the schools were built to be integrated in an area that was the home to the Howard Dragoons, a band of land owners of who joined the Confederacy during the Civil War. In fact, the original film that was made for the welcome center said "If you hold racial prejudice, don't move here." These kids (now adults) were the first real integrated class here in Howard County and were part of rebuilding the school systems that was mired in racial segregation and out right race riots at sporting events.

It was even reflected in the architecture. James Rouse hired Frank Ghery who at the time only had one project under his belt. His own house. He then designed the Rouse Company Building (which was rejected - see the 2nd photo) and Merriweather Post Pavillion (also rejected).

Thanks for your time.
