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.
Celebrating our 100th easement
Historic New England is delighted to announce that Bell House in Little Boar’s Head, New Hampshire, is the one hundredth property protected through our Preservation Easement Program. Bell House is a seaside, Shingle Style home designed in 1898 by Boston architects Wales and Holt. The easement protects exterior and interior features of the house and carriage house, including woodwork, plaster work, door and window hardware, light fixtures, and built-in furniture. It also protects landscape features including stone walls, the driveway, and the design and location of Colonial Revival garden beds. It safeguards the two-acre site from insensitive development.
