Window Sash Restoration at the Lyman Estate

Historic Homeowner Membership - $200 ($70 tax-deductible)

Historic Homeowner membership helps you address the everyday needs, concerns, and problems you encounter in your old or historic home, whether it was built in 1750 or 1950. From paint colors to pantries, eaves to energy conservation, Historic Homeowner membership helps you preserve and maintain the character and value of your historic home. This membership offers dedicated attention, knowledgeable support, and customized service that no shelter magazine or how-to guide can provide.

In addition to personalized support on their own old-house questions, members in this category enjoy access to members-only behind-the-scenes events on topics tailored to preserving houses. Through the Historic Homeowner program, members share in protecting the unique character of historic properties throughout the region. Get a sample of resources for homeowners.
