About NCSG


Understanding where an organization has been is an important part of determining the best course for the future. Let's take a moment to look back at where the National Chimney Sweep Guild has been. This timeline was initially compiled by previous Guild staff members for the 20th anniversary of the organization and has since been updated by volunteers and staff members alike. If you'd like to submit your photos or stories of important milestones, please contact Bob Fleer  at or (410) 544-7600. He will use the information to help enhance the historical timeline of the Guild.
