Honoring the past by investing in the future.

This project reimagines the long vacant Mace’s Lane High School—segregated until 1969—into a beacon of hope for the more than 1,500 youth who live within a one-mile radius of the Club in Cambridge, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

The facility will feature a 7,109 square foot gymnasium, tech lab, gamesroom, and classrooms in which Boys & Girls Club will provide out-of-school time programming that focuses on academic success, character and leadership development, the arts, health and wellness, sports and recreation, and workforce readiness.

When the renovation is complete, the center will accommodate more than 150 youth members daily and 900 annually. 

Then and Now

This facility will also house a museum and cultural center that honors the region’s African American history during and after the period of segregation. This portion of the facility will be managed by the Mace’s Lane Community Center (MLCC), an all-volunteer organization led by a 15-person board of directors.
