Preservation 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 100 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.

Feature Story

Stewardship MarkerHistoric Plaque Program for Easement Properties

Historic New England has recently developed a historic plaque program to recognize the 100 properties currently protected through our Preservation Easement Program and to acknowledge the efforts of property owners to preserve and maintain these historic structures. These durable, high-quality plaques measure seven-and-one-half (7 ½”) inches by three-and-one-half (3 ½”) inches. Owners of properties in the Preservation Easement Program interested in participating should email our staff or call 617-994-6642 to discuss appropriate locations for installation and coordinate delivery of their historic plaque.
