Stewardship Easement Program
Historic New England works with concerned historic property owners to ensure that their historic houses and landscapes are protected from insensitive alterations or neglect. The more than eighty properties currently protected through preservation easements with Historic New England reflect a range of architectural styles and time periods in rural, suburban, and urban locations.
Easement protects mid-century Modern house designed by Eliot Noyes
Historic New England recently worked with homeowner Robert C. Graham Jr. to protect a mid-century Modern house in Stamford, Connecticut, through Historic New England’s Stewardship Easement Program. The house was designed by the prominent architect Eliot Noyes (1910-1977) in 1966 and is recognized as one of his most dramatic and sculptural houses. The preservation easement was donated by Mr. Graham, who commissioned the design and construction of the house and remains committed to its preservation. The easement permanently protects the exterior, important interior features, and nearly ten acres of its impressive and dramatic natural setting.
