The Maryland Archaeological Conservation (MAC) Laboratory is a state-of-the-art archaeological research, conservation and collections facility. Opened in 1998, the Lab holds the State's archaeological artifact collections. In the labs, the often fragile artifacts are stabilized, cleaned and conserved for future study and exhibition. Suitable temperature and humidity conditions are carefully maintained and monitored in the collections storage area to protect Maryland's rich archaeological heritage. By analyzing these artifacts and their sites, archaeologists here have uncovered new and valuable information about our past.

This building won an Honor Award from the Maryland Society/Architectural Institute of America "for architectural excellence" and a Design Award, Honorable Mention, from the Baltimore Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). In her 95th year, Gertrude Sawyer, the original architect of Point Farm, reviewed the plans and suggested several useful improvements.
